      Think about a 2 ele quad. They beam sideways. Now flip it through 90deg........Simples !................Mike G4HOL

      All adding a reflector underneath will do is act like lowering the antenna closer to the ground I bet .... Could you simulate something like that in EZNEC?

      It would also alter the take off angle I would think
