Directional Antennas vs Omni Antennas for WSPR

For only being a WSPR user for about a month I have noticed that my 3 element yagi gets many more receive spots than transmit spots. It seems that it receives well in all directions although better in the direction in which it is pointed while the transmit result is much more directional resulting in far fewer stations hearing me in directions other than which it is pointed. Mt dipole gives me much more responses from stations that hear me in comparison. Has anyone out there noticed similarities? I think an OMNI antenna is better for transmitting on WSPR.
