The Zuni Loop Mountain Expeditionary Force are a loose group (i.e. I
think they'll accept you if you appear on their site!) that heads into
the hills of California on Field Day and erects humongous wire antennas
(of all sorts -- loops, curtains, beams, quads). They then put a huge
signal into the lower 48 states with 5W!

They're expolits have been documented in the past in QQ (where I got
most of my dope on them). It seems they draw the 1000 foot (or whatever
it is!) circle around a group of trees then they figure out how to get
the biggest load of antennas into that space: a Sterba curtain on 20m
at 90 foot, a three element 40m delta, a 80m horizontal loop at 50 foot
and perhaps a rhombic too!

Worth reading for inspiration!
