   While there is no doubt putting up 2 or 3 elements would
 improve your station capabilities on 160 but It makes me
   You have not mentioned the use of any receiving 
antennas at your station so I would like to point out that 
your use of the acre sized parcel might produce better DX
 results by using this ground for a really good RX array.
      It is my experience here on the West  coast which QRZ
 says is your location, that I improved my station a lot more
 with RX antennas than by improving my TX antenna over a
 single 90 foot stick with 60+ radials. A triangle array 
receiving wise only produces a moderate increase in 
receiving ability over a single TX antenna. You might be the
 loudest thing around but you still have to hear them to work
 them. Here are some RX antenna comparisons. 

my 2 cents worth YMMV
