Rick - that's a bit of surprising news with your inverted L, as verticals dominate on top band from what I hear. For transmitting I mean... the beverages and other "different" antennas are supposed to be the key to hearing well on 160. I can't do a beverage as I don't have several hundred feet to run wires off the ground, so an active antenna or mag-loop will probably be my receiving solution when I put up my inverted L later this year (hopefully!)
What configuration was it?
How high did it go before the wire turned horizontal?
How many radials did you have?
I understand that the radial field under an inverted L is more important than on a trapped vertical, and I can tell you from personal experience that it is VERY important on a trapped vertical!
Inquiring minds wanna know....
