I think you are confusing it with a horizontal vee or vee-beam.  Besides, if
you have two tall supports to hold up the ends, why not go ahead and pull
the wire tight enough to raise the mid-point and make it a true horizontal
dipole? The inverted-vee is a compromise antenna designed to approach the
performance of a horizontal half-wave dipole using only one high support.
