An inverted V will, unless mounted very high above ground,
radiate much of your power upwards.  At night, it will just
fly off into outer space and people won't hear it, or not
well anyway.  A vertical aerial at night is better for 200
to 1000 miles, or a vee can be used between dawn and about 4
hours after dawn for coverage out to 250 miles or so.

Cheers,

Martin.
