Here's another great pedestrian mobile antenna project from Australian ham Peter Parker (VK3YE). You can either use this antenna while you walk or use it as a temporary antenna during rest stops at picnic tables or camp sites.
Although the antenna is a bit short for 40 meters, it does work fairly well on that band. Here's Peter's observation:
"Some 7 & 28 MHz HF pedestrian mobile with 6 metres of wire. 6m is barely 1/8 wavelength on 7 MHz but 5/8 wavelength on 28 MHz."
