Here's a simple inverted-L antenna that works well between 40 and 10 meters. According to Craig Sheppard, the antenna is about 58 feet/17.68 meters long and 24 feet/7.31 meters high at the branch supporting the top of the antenna. The longer section is terminated at a post between 6-7 feet/1.87-2.13 meters high at the far end. Don't forget to install a good ground radial or counterpoise system to maximize efficiency and reduce RFI and SWR.
