Why would a Beverage respond to vertically polarized signals anyway? With a
Beverage over perfect ground and a zero degree arrival angle, there would
theoretically be no induced signal in the antenna.

Granted that wavefront tilt will occur due to ground losses with a zero
degree signal, but that wave tilt then means the signal isn't totally
vertically polarized anymore so we are then not speaking of response to a
vertical polarization.

Agree? Disagree?
