Here's all you need to know about NVIS (near vertical incident skywave) antennas. Kevin Loughin (KIB9RLW) provides an excellent review of the theory, construction, and use of NVIS antennas. As an added bonus, he analyzes the pros and cons of the Chameleon MPAS (Modular Portable Antenna System).
If you need an effective antenna for local, regional, and state-wide coverage, then a NVIS antenna may be what you're looking for. Kevin does a good job of explaining where these antennas fit into the overall antenna portfolio of an amateur radio station.
