I didn't say the same results could be achieved. I said tilting an antenna changes the elevation pattern. I dont know why he uses that setup but am hoping he will answer that question himself here. First of all, what band is it for? It may be related to 1/2 WL height above ground which I keep seeing popping up for some reason. I would assume that is a good antenna height to get a reasonably low radiation angle is that correct? Can someone answer why WWV in Colorado uses exactly this 1/2 WL antenna height for each frequency antenna they use? What is so "magical" (beneficial) about 1/2 WL antenna height? It just so happens that my 20m attic dipole is about 33 ft above ground and that is exactly 1/2 WL. I dont know how much difference that really makes but I am hearing a fair amount of people even on the lower 80m bands at night. W5KU for example in TX. Maybe that is the only antenna I need for Rx.
