Here's an interesting antenna idea that has generated lots of comments over the past few years. Even broadcast stations have experimented with the EH antenna idea, with varying results.  Some claim the EH antenna is no better than a dummy load, while others believe the concept is workable if you pay strict attention to its design parameters.

In this video, OM0ET makes a 40 meter EH antenna based on a design by WB5CXC.  Apparently, the homebrew EH antenna works for him.  You may want to build one yourself and see what results you have.  This could be an interesting experiment.
