Look in ON4UN's Low Band DX'ing third edition, at the time of print, you will 
see a number of world class low banders exclusively using and doing wonders 
with the HF2V's on 80 meters...........listed were K3OSX (179 confirmed, 
5BDXCC),  VE6LB (115 confirmed, 32 zones, 5BDXCC), VE7FPT (159 confirmed), 
W4PA (180 confirmed, 5BDXCC using HF2V's phased),  and W8XD(34 zones 
5BDXCC)........it's all perspective.  If you have room for a 90 foot tower, 
your friend's Inv V is a good choice, but we are talking about small lot's, 
possible antenna restrictions etc.............and you know, that H44RD gave 
me an all time new one last month, DXCC#310, and #165 on 80M.....his 
Butternut HF2V was music to my ears-
