I'm sorry if you're offended -- none was intended. But most of us who
have heard Tom speak on the topic have found the story a clever way of
observing that some things work better than others. I have a vertical
half-wave dipole for 40M hanging next to a very tall redwood, and I can
make a lot of QSOs with it and get good signal reports. But if I switch
to a high horizontal dipole in he middle of the QSO, the other station
will tell me the horizontal dipole is ten dB louder.
My comments were specifically written for the original poster, and to
give him enough ideas to think intelligently about his problem.
