I was first licenced in 1961 when I passed a CW exam and operated from club stations YU3CST in Koper and YU3CNO in Ljubljana.
My favorite ham activity is SOTA chasing and activating (more information about SOTA in http://www.sota.org.uk/).
My home antenna is horizontal delta loop (37 m wire, 8 m agl) fed by 300 ohm twin lead cable, connected to internal KX3 tuner using 1:2 balun. KX3 can easily tune this antena on all bands from 7 to 50 MHz.
When portable, I experimented with several home made wire antennas (verticals with ground radials, doublets and delta loops(!)) supported by 4m, 6m or 9m telescopic poles. All resulted in successful activations, then I tried a simple endfed antenna in inv.L configuration and it became my favorit SOTA antenna.
