I found this article by W5DXP while I was looking for an easy, inexpensive, and portable HF multiband antenna for my home-in-progress in Hawaii Island's Puna District.  Clearing an acre of land is a slow, tedious process, but, taking a break for some amateur radio contacts, reinvigorates my spirits.  I wanted an antenna that could be erected quickly between two Norfolk Pine trees in my back yard.
The design from W5DXP is self-explanatory with all of the details necessary to build this simple, effective antenna.  If you build this antenna according to the illustration from W5DXP, you should have good results.  Best of all, there is no antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") involved.
