Should I build 1/2 wave? Flat Top or inverted? And why if you have time... Thanks in advance!

Build a 1/2 and then mount it so that you can test in each config.  If you make it adjustable and the ends sp you can go from ^ to flat top or \ sloper.
The only dumb question is the one that did not get asked!!
