Log-Periodic Dipole Array (LPDA). Post #1041.

Here's an interesting, somewhat complex antenna idea for radio amateurs willing to experiment with unusual VHF /UHF antennas . When I was in the USAF , I saw these LPDA arrangements used for the upper HF bands (20 through 10 meters) and for some VHF applications.  The LPDA is a broadbanded, unidirectional antenna that is useful for DX and contest events. Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) has done a good job of explaining the theory, design, construction, and use of this often overlooked antenna.  If you can't reach that distant VHF/UHF repeater, try a LPDA.
