If you wish to explore antenna possibilities beyond simple dipoles, inverted vees, and verticals, try building a yagi, log periodic, and phased array. The time and effort expended in designing, building, and using these antennas is worth it in terms of better performance, higher gain, and directivity.
In this video, Dave Casler (KE0OG) discusses each of these antennas and makes suggestions on how you can build your own version of these antennas. The video is informative and easy to understand--a good, basic tutorial worth keeping in your reference library.
