Unintentional tower coupling

After reading VK3YE Peter's blog recently about coupling a 28m long lightpole with a loop on 160m and 80m I think something similair happened at my antenna setup. Unintenional of course and it is only working well on 160m. Above the results of my efforts on 160m FT8 last evening. Nice to see the greyline spots, even spotted at daylight in the USA. Calling for Japan resulted in immidiate response, but after some QSOs it gets boring.....Imagine for others it is only a dream to work Japan on 160m. It is a nice side effect of course but I wonder how much the coupling affects the antenna radiation pattern on 20m to 10m.
