NEC4.2 comparison of an inverted V, center-fed dipole with a linear center-fed dipole:

AUTHOR EDITS:

  1. The apex angle in my plots here is mislabeled. The correct value is 120°.
  2. The graphic below compares the elevation pattern gains at 90° azimuth intervals for these two configurations; posted in response to the comment of rclocher3.

    $\begingroup$ Interesting, I never considered an inverted-vee to be a DX antenna. The two 3D radiation plots look nearly identical, except for the scale. Would you please consider adding 2D radiation plots that show gain vs. elevation angle for the broadside direction? $\endgroup$ – rclocher3 Jun 29 at 15:06
  • $\begingroup$ Doesn't really look like either one is high enough to be especially good... $\endgroup$ – Phil Frost - W8II Jun 29 at 19:36
