If you want to experiment with a different kind of amateur radio antenna, you may find this video from Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) interesting.
Stan calls this variation of the classic "Lazy H Antenna" the "Perky "H" Antenna.
According to Stan, this antenna is "a broadside array comprising of two vertical folded dipoles fed with ladder line." You should get a good bi-directional pattern with some gain.
If you want more information on the "Lazy H" family of curtain arrays, please check out "The Lazy 'H' Antenna" by Dave Newman (NA4L) at this site:
