I wouldn't recommend a vertical for anything over 20m put up a wire dipole if you can.

To answer your question, the HF360 works quite well on 10-40m at least.

A wire dipole is all well and good as long as you have the horizontal space to string one out, and not everyone can.

You love Antenna threads Warlock LOL.

If you have room for the HF360 then you definitely have room for a Delta Loop.
See one of the your other "What Antenna do you recommend" threads as I gave advice on how to make one along with with the formula's and a link to a video.

In fact, it was this thread.
I will not be commanded, I will not be controlled.
n+1 the formula for working out how many radios you need with n being the current amount.

I would add +1 for the SE-HF360, better than you would imagine.

Following my enquiry in a previous post, I decided on a long wire. I have gone for a Windom type 20m through to 10m its only 10.5 meters long, split into a 2/3 x 1/3 . I got it up 25 feet on a pulley fixed to the house and the long leg at just over 7 meters is fixed to the top of an 8 meter telescopic roach pole, like wise the short leg is mounted the same way. So it is in a V shape, the first contact on 20m I got 5 and 8 into USSR with 50 watts second contact 5 and 5 into Turkey. Wondom's are cheap and can be got from Moonraker my one was just under 40.00 delivered.

Any antenna is better than no antenna, but I wouldn't recommend such a junk to anyone.
