Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE) has produced an interesting video about the bi-square antenna--one of the few antennas I've never tried.  According to Peter, the construction of this antenna is simple:  Take two 10 meter (approximately 33-feet) of wire, "form into a square with the ends at the top and bottom.  Support at the top and tie off to maintain a square diamond shape.  Connect to transceiver via (an) antenna coupler that can handle high impedances...the support should be 7-8 metres (23 to 26-feet) high."  Peter believes the antenna can deliver around 3-4 dB gain with a figure 8 pattern broadside to the wires.
