100% agreement from me.

During times of high activity, the "low directivity" antenna in one of my 
ears will be either the TX antenna (properly attenuated), short Beverage, or 
K9AY loop.

Tom's comment on the problem of "hearing something" away from the main 
direction isn't limited to huge antenna farms, either. My 550 ft. European 
Beverage has a deep null off the side and I can miss Caribbean and South 
American callers.
