If you have a tall tree on your property, you may want to try this antenna.  As Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) explains, this multiband HF antenna can be used where space is at a premium.  Each leg of the dipole should be at least a 1/4 wavelength at your lowest frequency of use.  An antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") and ladder line will permit multiband use.  Try this simple antenna and "work DX on a budget."
