Here's another simple, effective, and inexpensive antenna suitable for both home and field use.

In this video, VE3BF uses common materials to make a quick and easy 40 meter vertical antenna, which can be used on other amateur radio bands with an "antenna tuner."

Here are the materials needed for this project:

Shakespeare telescoping 20 carbon fibre fishing pole from Amazon.
33' 9"/10.28 meters of 18 gauge speaker wire.
LDG 4:1 balun.
20'/6.097 meters of 50 ohm coaxial cable for the feedline.
Extra wire for a simple ground radial or counterpoise system.
