On the thought of a low dipole:

Years ago in Northern California, as an experiment, I had a VERY low dipole and got some strange results. Listening to a local station, in the afternoon, there was very deep QSB. We were able to talk, but with difficulty.

That would be a pretty low dipole on 160M, and verticals tend to be far more effective on 160M than low dipoles.
