Here's another antenna idea which is both simple to make and even easier to set up and take down.  In this video, Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE) experiments with a homebrew end-fed vertical beam antenna for the 10 meter amateur radio band (28 MHz).  The antenna works fairly well considering its limitations.  You could modify the antenna into a phased vertical antenna system or convert some extra wire into a half-square antenna for additional directivity and gain.  A nice, simple, inexpensive antenna for portable and at-home use.
