This is post # 1192 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
The secret to an efficient and safe long wire antenna is a sturdy 9:1 Unun combined with a ground radial/counterpoise system. In this video, Victor Ivanoff describes the 9:1 Unun he used with a "sloper antenna long wire dipole" during the 2016 ARRL Field Day. You can find more information on this Unun at this website: http://transverters-store.com.
