Don't short change the single fed wire WinDom. They do work. I
used one for many years on 80, 40 and 20 meters. You will need
a Pi network in the output of your xmitter or a series coil in the
antenna tunner. PI works great without the need for a tuner.
Running less than 25 watts input I was easily able to work all states
on 40 meter with a little DX, got WAC on 20 meters and over 30 states
on 80 meters.
My feed line was about 50 ' and I used a 8' gnd rod.
Sometimes simple antennas work very well. Oh yes the antenna was
only 20 ' above the ground.
