I never had much success using a low dipole, even from the Caribbean. For
me a short vertical with a minimal ground system worked better and it used
much less real estate.

Not necessarily ... I also did fairly well with a "low" dipole from
Ohio - not exactly close to the Atlantic - although the vertical was
certainly better (but with more noise on receive).

Perhaps, IF you live close to the Atlantic Ocean, with easy access to
EU. NOT if you live on the west coast. :)
