Type of antenna to use for WSPR.

Hi all,
I am in the process of building a WSPR transmitter and have a question reqarding antennas. I was wondering, since I am using a dipole for my main antenna, should I also use a dipole for the WSPR transmitter? This would therefore simulate my main antenna if it is orientated the way my main dipole is orientated. Or, should I consider a vertical antenna at the same height as the main dipole to get a more omni pattern? Which would give a better indication of current propagation conditions?
Thanks for any thoughts.
