I think that it is definiately worth the effort to put up a short
Beverage.  I have a 350' Beverage towards Europe and a K9AY array.  The
K9AY array is great and I would not want to be without it.  Still, the
Beverage almost always outperforms the K9AY array to the NE.

Right now I am using crossed K9AY loops for recieve, and a 65 foot tall
Inverted-L for transmit.  I seem to get out a bit better than I hear,
though this winter I've been too busy for much DX.
