Last year I described several Low Band RX antennas that would enable you to
hear DX stations on 160, 80 and 40M. This will show you how to build
transmit antennas that will help you break the pileups!
Here is Al Penney’s Low Band RX Antennas, presented at the 2017 Symposium for Maritime Amateur Radio Techs.

Amateur Radio antenna class for students from the Annapolis West Education Centre in Annapolis Royal. We covered the theory of transmissions lines and antennas first, then made some practical measurements, and finally went outside to set up a portable HF station. With 100 watts from a battery-powered transceiver and a simple dipole antenna, we worked stations all over Europe and North America.
