Shortie 40
Now 40m is normally not a problem length wise, for camping this will do fine even in your backyard.
Add the 1:1 balun and off u go. The picture says it all.

You have to experiment with the amount of turns for the “Shortie Forty”, like any antenna :)That’s the thing with homebrew, the dimensions and amount of turns might work here at my QTH and u find it a bit different at yours, antenna plan’s is just that! Make a plan, get it to work, make that transceiver happy. (Get the SWR low enough so the transmitter will deliver full power to the antenna.)
