This video from John Saunders (VK4BZ) provides several options for radio amateurs looking for simple, effective, inexpensive, and thoroughly portable antennas for SOTA (Summits On The Air) and home use. 

John does an excellent job of showing several antennas he has used in a variety of portable operations, including verticals, dipoles, and end-fed random length wires.  Most of these antennas can be made from locally available materials.

John does a thorough job of describing the advantages and disadvantages of each antenna, so you choose the one that best suits your requirements.  These antennas can be adapted for use in deed-restricted properties, where easy set up and take down are a must.
