I used to have a Cushcraft R7 (pre-MFJ) on a 15' pole just above my roof, I worked the world with that antenna.

But not at the Sunspot low...

Why not at the sunspot low?

close to a chain link or metal siding will mess the SWR and pattern up bigly.

No antenna located in the midst of ground clutter, is likely to perform as well as one that isn't so placed. Absorption and scattering are bound to play a part in the radiation pattern, but generally it isn't too serious.

During a sunspot maximum there are a lot more usable propagation paths, so even if the pattern of an antenna is totally screwed up, it may still "work."
