I would think a full size Tx and Rx four square would work better due to size and you can Tx on it. 

For now I wanted something to hear better as I have other Tx avenues. 

If I had the room, time and resouces I would build a 160 and 80 four square that I can Tx on.

That is great information, John.

I am curious if these work any better for receiving than a full sized
vertical TX four square?

Hi Z seems to have a better mouse trap when compared to Dxe.

The methods and how to handle RF from near by active elements is the key
since I run QRO and this is important as
many indicated this to be an issue with Dxe.

I was looking at a used 4 sq from Dxe but after checking into the Hi Z
I will get more bang for the buck
in the long run.
