Bobtail Curtain Antenna. Post 1981.

If you want a single band, high gain HF antenna, please consider the "classic" Bobtail Curtain Antenna.  According to Stan Gibilisco (W1GV), the Bobtail Curtain is a "monoband, broadside wire arry" that delivers significant gain with easily obtained materials.

Unlike the simple dipole or inverted V antennas, the Bobtail Curtain Antenna requires careful attention to detail and may require adjustment before its full potential can be realized.

I've used Bobtail Curtain Antennas at several ARRL Field Day events, and can attest to their performance.  The time invested in designing and building this antenna pays off in excellent performance.
