Any I guess as they're so small!

I'd put up a beam for a field day.

2 element quad is fairly simple to make.

Str.
'It's better to give than receive' so why RX when you can TX!

                            Buy one from me, NOW!

Great discounts on ALL my transmitters if purchased via HFUnderground

Can't go wrong with an Antron-99 unless your looking for something directional

Well, just today, I worked a dude on 10M from TN whom had a double 10M Hamsticks in the dipole-like pattern. Not a great signal my way, but he gave me at the most an S5 with his 100W, while my original late 80's RCI-2950 was only pushing out 18W back to him. I'm using a rebuilt 10M Ringo AR-10. I believe that he heard me better than I heard him, but still a nice contact. I'm sure those 10M Hamsticks could be MAX'ed out for 11M. I still have a 6M Hamstick to a 5" MAG mount. 10W on 6M SSB had me working "7" land back in the mid-1990's.
I can't decide upon what's worst, young and stupid, or old and chemically dumbed down.

A wire a few wavelengths long would be very directional and easy to tote around.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.
