Hi Matthew,

With any horizontal antenna for 11 metres you are going to have problems speaking to anybody locally (horizontally polarised groundwaves just don't seem to travel very far).  They're okay for long distance skip (when atmospheric conditions are right) but fairly hopeless for short range ground wave comm's unfortunately.

As always I'm happy for someone to come along and correct me, but these are my experiences so far.
