On the other hand --depending on the angle and orientation-- there is
*some* vertically polarized RF radiated from an inverted vee. Especially
off the ends.

Exactly, Bruce! I just posted this about polarization on 160:
I wondered about the inverted-L. My guess is that it had a poor ground

There are always exceptions.
A few years ago there was someone that had a inverted V that worked well
It was found that it was feed with open wire feeders that acted as a

If your antenna works well be happy. Ham radio is a great hobby.
