Inverted V vs Dipole?????? My primary interests are in DX and contesting. Land is not an issue for wire antennas (almost 2 acres to play with). My property in the back is surrounded by pine trees 40-50ft tall. So 1/2 wave lengths and longer are an option. Right now I have a off-center fed dipole at 28ft. I am looking at changing it from a flat top to an inverted V. I also want to get something up on 160m while I am considering a tower and beams.
