FWIW, I have 4 ants in my ant farm for low bands.
1 - Ground mounted Hustler vert w/o radials (intentional for high angles)
2 - Full wave loop for 80 m @ 10', works good on 40 also
3 - 165' wire sloper for 160 m top end @ 50', works on all other bands
4 - G5RV as inverted vee apex @ 30'
The main benefit I get from these ants are varying launch angles and noise
reduction. If the noise is bad on the vert, it usually is several dB down on
one or more of the other ants. Directionality is only slightly different
between all of them.
