If you want to experiment with an unusual antenna design, try the Isotron 10 Meter Ham Radio Antenna.  In this post from "videosbymike" we see how this antenna is built and what it can do when propagation favors the 10 meter band. Mike unpacked the box, quickly set up the antenna, and made some solid contacts to Santiago, Chile and Puerto Rico from his porch approximately 20-feet/6.097 meters above ground.  The rig used for the antenna test was an old Radio Shack HTX-10 running 25 watts from solar panels.  Isotron also makes antennas for 160, 80, 40, 20, and 15 meters.
