Here's an interesting antenna design for radio amateurs exploring the 630 meter and 2200 meter amateur radio bands.  This classic antenna is basically a top loaded vertical designed for frequencies below the standard broadcast band (472 kHz and 137 kHz).  Even though this antenna is inefficient, a digital signal using the FT8 protocol should get you some contacts.  Good luck!
