If you experiment with HF amateur radio antennas, this Wire Antenna Calculator from Jim Clymer, Jr. (WS6X) will save you a lot of time as you configure and trim your HF antenna ideas.  I've made a copy of the article for my reference library, since I tend to try many antenna designs at my QTH.

Here are the main antennas discussed by Jim:

Standard Flat Top Dipole.
Inverted Vee.
Quad Loops.
Equilateral Delta Loops.
Full Wave Loops.

Each section carries some basic antenna theory and construction tips to maximize the performance of these popular antennas.

The calculator is simple.  All  you have to do is fill in the calculator form and press the calculate button.
