Antenna orientation

Hi All,

Now that I have got my station up and running I'm trying to get a better understanding of how far my signal travels.

The legs of my inverted vee antenna are aligned more or less east-west and my signal has been picked up picked up in Switzerland and Italy to the south-east, Norway to the north-east and Maine (USA) to the south-west. Is this to be expected based on the orientation of my antenna?

I'm new to HF operation and so am just starting to gain an understanding of propagation.
