In theory, yes. But in practice, I doubt that the difference will be noticed.

Instead check out c-pole antennas. I made a 20m one and it works great, nearly as good as any vertical, if I can hoist it up 25 feet. It doesn't need radials. The book "Antenna Engineers Notebook" has plans for a multi band c-pole.
If you have 11 foot diameter, and can get 20 foot up, check out hex-beam antennas.
Today I used my SuperAntennas. MP-1, got a nice qso with OE3DIA on 20m. MP-1 is really portable and works great.
