Bill was referring to "Full-Size" antennas for 40 meters.
While HyGain and Cushcraft and others make loaded versions,
getting a full blown, full size antenna has almost become a
roll-your-own only antenna.

I would like to remind everyone that HyGain has a 40 meter beam as
well. The newer Discoverer series is redisgned and is a good
performer. I had intended to build a 40 meter beam, based on the
computer aided designs that are in the ARRL Antenna Handbooks, but when
I realized the length of the full sized elements, I replaced my older
HyGain 402BAS with the newer designed Discoverer 7-2. It is
significantly different than the older version, and I have been very
happy with it. They also offer the third element to make it a 3 element
40 meter beam.
