Both antennae had their tips at the same height.
I have spent a little while evaluating the difference between these two antennae. It boils down to a difference of 5dB locally (less than 10Km), 2dB out to the edge of the ground wave (35Km ish) and no difference via F2 skywave at least to triple hop distance. The end fed half wave was better in all circumstances.
Hmm, What to buy? Well, hmm, I'm a dX guy, so the dipole will be coming down and I'll pop a 50MHz beam up in it's place. Beyond that,, no idea, make your own choices. I got a cheap second hand G-Whip end fed and I can say it's a really good performer. I was going to try the dipole with a balun, but I really don't see the point.
