Alexander,

Height above ground is the main facter, most installations at 35/40' even as high in frequency as 40 meters are NVIS and omni-directional. The benefit of the vertical componant of an inverted "V" (assuming a proper angle), can only be seen if the ends are 35' or so high. Any lower, usually the flat-top wins because of less ground coupling. Boy, I'm waiting for the slash and burn on this one.
