With propagation favoring the lower HF bands, you may want to design, build, and use this 40/80/160 Meter coiled-loaded Inverted V Dipole Antenna.  This antenna doesn't require a ground radial system or an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner").

Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ) shows you how to make this 3-band HF antenna that will serve you well at your home station or at your ARRL Field Day activity site.
Dave does an excellent job of taking you step-by-step through the design and building phases.  In the end, you will have a multiband inverted V that will get you on the lower HF bands at a reasonable cost.
