Why not try a new antenna for the upcoming ARRL Field Day on 23-24 June 2018? The compact HF multiband antenna described by NC4FB may be what you're looking for.  This antenna is based on a design my G7FEK (http://www.g7fek.co.uk/software/G7FEKantenna.pdf) and will cover all Amateur Radio bands between 80 and 10 meters. An antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") is required for 17, 15, 12, 10, and 6 meters.

According to NC4FB, this compact antenna has several good points in its favor:

Small size
Uses 50 ohm coax as an antenna feeder.
Multiband operation between 80 and 10 meters.
Low angle of radiation (good for DX).
Easy to build, set up, and take down.

This antenna can fit on most urban lots and is suitable for both portable and permanent installations.
