Being  able to "work what you can hear" is an almost worthless criteria
for  judging an antenna, and for the life of me I can't understand why
hams keep  using it as if it meant anything.

Working what you hear is great, but with the right antenna at the  right 
height, you can hear more.  Then you can still work all you can  hear...but 
more of it since you can hear more.
When the band is open you can work just about everything with any  antenna, 
but with marginal conditions antenna parameters for angles become  more 
By the way, I just got a card from a 4X station who has 7 band DXCC  
mobile, so like I said, if the band is open no matter aboout HFTA, big antennas
