Here's another HF loop antenna idea if you have some trees or tall supports in your backyard.  Marcus Schrader built this full-wavelength 40 meter loop (143 feet/43.59 meters) and suspended it 20 feet/6.09 meters above ground using a few trees in his back yard.  He uses a 4:1 balun along with a length of 450 ohm ladder line to feed the antenna.  Marcus uses this combination with an antenna "tuner" to cover 10 through 40 meters.  As you can see from the video, the antenna is fairly "stealthy".
