That's not an upside down inverted vee - it's a very thin pair of rabbit ears.
Here's another idea: I have a friend who operated QRP with an Yaesu FT-817 and an external auto-tuner. He would launch a random size loop by shooting a light, small gauge insulated wire completely over a tree, including many small branches, which formed a circular loop. He brought the ends together and connected to the BNC to binding post adapter on the antenna side of the tuner. I would guess that the loop was approximately one wavelength at 7 MHz. This antenna worked quite well. My friend's first name was Larry so I dubbed this antenna the "Larry Loop". I haven't tried it myself, but I intend to. A very practical and quick portable antenna to set up.

They're doing the same thing and selling them!
