Karl,
I agree,the MR halo is at best unpredictable. When I needed a quick solution to a unidirectional, horizontally polarised aerial for WSPR on 6 I used this
http://www.qsl.net/g3pto/6m_dipole.html and bent it around in a halo shape.

Results were better than the commercial job and a lot cheaper. Mine was in the loft, not so easy to waterproof for external use!
