Here's an antenna design that could provide a good, consistent signal on the 40 meter Amateur Radio band.  Les (EA5AVL) wrote this intriguing article for http://www.dxzone.com.  According to Les "the antenna was designed to provide excellent communications on the 40m band, utilizing readily available components and be relatively easy to construct."  Les says the antenna performed well during the 2007-2011 time frame, when there was a sunspot minimum.  This antenna would make a good club project for the ARRL Field Day, which will be held 25-26 June 2016.
