If you want full dipole antenna performance but don't have enough space to erect a full-half wavelength horizontal dipole, then a simple sloping dipole antenna may be the answer.  In video, Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) presents a simple tutorial on how to design, build, and use a slopping dipole antenna.  All you need is one tall support and a place to tie off the bottom part of the sloper.  Stan also discusses what portion of the sloper should be attached to the center pin of your coax feed line.  A simple, inexpensive antenna that will keep you on the air in a restricted space environment.
