Yes, that is a "special case" and has been theorized about in the 
literature...however, the general and more typical case is low angle based. 
Asserting the exception doesn't create the rule, it just makes the rule 
subject to an exception and most people don't erect antennas for the 
exception. Good point, though. Thanks!
