To my knowledge no one in the past has disputed that a large and small
vertical would have the same radiation PATTERN. What has been said is
that the intensity of the signal radiated from a large vertical is
greater than a short one. On receive the signal voltage collected by a
large vertical is greater than the small vertical.

There is a big difference in the radiation pattern and angle of take off
between a high vertical antenna and a very low antenna given the same rf
power to the antenna. 1 Watt erp from a dummy load or low horizontal wire
is hardly the same as 1 Watt erp from a vertical antenna at 120 ft.
Did I miss(understand) something ?
