Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) does an excellent job of explaining the general theory behind "longwire antennas." This video discusses basic antenna theory, construction tips, antenna patterns, ground radial/counterpoise systems, and limitations of long wire antennas. A good, basic introduction to a versatile antenna which has been used since the beginning of the 20th century.
