With the Ten Meter contest approachng, would it be worth the time and effort to construct a ten meter rotatable dipole or just use a plain resonant dipole?

An important factor is the height. Higher is significantly better when the maximum usable frequency is low. A rotatable dipole can be very useful for nulling out interference.
