If you need an excellent receiving antenna for HF and MF bands, then you can't beat the "classic" Beverage Antenna from the early 1920s.  Although significant space is needed to deploy this antenna, the rewards are great. In this expertly done video from Steve (VE6WZ), we get a full tutorial on the theory, design, construction. and use of the Beverage Antenna.  Here are some of Steve's comments: "Various methods for construction and installation of a Beverage RX antenna in the field. Described are methods for wire layout, tree clearing, wire support and both feed-point and termination installation using tree supports. Also shown is how the relay boxes for multiple Beverages, and the broadside phasing boxes are deployed in the field." -----
