What effect will positioning a dipole (Vee) in a "bent" fashion have? By "bent" I mean that the wire ends terminate at positions not in line with the apex. If one were to view the arrangement from above, one would see a V shape in the horizontal.
As odd as it seems, the effect is almost the same as rotating the antenna slightly to a new line that is equal angles to each side.
In other words, if you V the dipole in a 90 degree bend, it is almost like having it on a line 45 degrees off from each leg. It loses a littkle end null as the bend approches 90 degrees, and goes to heck at an increasing rate as it is bent more, but for bends much under a 90 it is almost exactly like just rotating it a little bit.
Right off the point, or in the back away from the point, is the maximum. That maximum is only a little less than a straight dipole would be.
