Yes.. It's quick and easy to deploy, works without a ground system, has 
a useful amount of low angle, and has a pattern like an inverted L. It's 
a good solution  for someone who can only use two 
dimensions..i.e..height and length. I use a variation by N6LF  (from his 
QEX article   ). I 
can use my farmer neighbour's fence line, but I can't put down a ground 
plane, as it would interfere with the agricultural activities.    I can't use anything 
that's wider than the fence, so  the "Double L"  or Rudy's "H" are ideal 
solutions for such circumstances. .
  A commercial version of the N6LF   "H" antenna is sold by Force 12
