Vertical HF antennas

My attitude to verticals changed recently whilst in Devon on holiday. I didn’t have enough physical space for my favorite 80m loop so I had to do with 20m instead. I started as a horizontal dipole but over a few days became a vertical. Being about 30 yards from the sea probably helped but apparently I was a very healthy 20 over in the USA. Verticals rule OK.
