Hi all...

Need some advice please...

I want to boost my antenna effeiciency on 160 metres...Not hard I guess, 
as right now I only use an 80 m inverted V half wave dipole with a 
reluctant tuner!!

What is a relatively good working practical antenna for 160 metre 
contesting use ? I can likely string up a half wave dipole, but it will 
not be totally straight or flat...Probably more of a sloping V from the 
top of my 50 foot tower...Are these any good or am I wasting my time?

What about a vertical ?
