Another 6 meter antenna you may find useful during the E-Skip openings this summer is the classic "squalo" antenna. This antenna was once popular for mobile operations and for areas with limited antenna space.
Chris (K2CJB) does an excellent job of taking you through the design, construction, tuning, and use of this somewhat unusual antenna. The antenna is sturdy, portable, and suitable for both home and field use. Why not build one for the upcoming North American VHF Contest or the June ARRL Field Day emergency communications exercise?
You can find exact plans for the 6 meter squalo antenna here:
