My place in Hawaii was sloped more than about 99% of all locations...a drop of 
1100 feet to sea level around 6000 feet away.  It does make a difference.  I 
had the same slope up hill as down and i can tell you 100% for sure the slope 
makes a difference.  I used a bent full size vertical wire  for 160 and 
downhiull was far better. It would be worth the extra coax if you had a pretty 
significant slope.

Looking for some advice from some of you who have been there and done that
before. I'm looking at moving my 160M inverted L to a new location that
would be approximately 100 feet ASL higher and be on top of a hill with
nearly perfect sloping ground in all directions. This would change my coax
run length from 130 feet to 620 feet. I'm looking at LMR400 to meet my loss
and budget needs. Is the move to sloping ground worth the extra work and
coax loss??
