Dear All,

I moved for new QTH and I am trying to work less than 5 Watts on HF especially on 40 meters. I have a limited space and I am looking your experiences regarding the antennas. I am thinking about for Inverted vee on 40 meters or SuperAntenna like MP-1.
I'know MP-1 more than single band antenna.
What is your recommendation ?

Every infos are very welcome.

If you have the space for a full sized 40 meter Inverted Vee, then by all means go for it. The MP-1 is a reduced sized antenna. Yes it will work, but the efficiency will suffer. If you want multi-band operation, I would suggest feeding the Inverted Vee with open wire feeders and a tuner.

The inverted vee will be cheap and very effective.  My experience is that placing the antenna as high as possible and as far from obstacles as possible will get you the best results. The higher the feedpoint the better it will perform (with big improvements noticeable up to a half wavelength or so).
Hope to C U on the bands soon.
