This topic was kinda beat up last month on this reflector.  Apparently there 
are a lot of reservations regarding the so-called non-resonant length table the 
ARRL has been publishing.  Just go to and search the page 
for "resonance".

Regardless, the numbers from the chart (and subject to eye-ball interpretation) 
in the ARRL Antenna Book are (for contest bands):

Anything less than ~13 feet (some folks use 3 feet, followed by 11 feet)then 27 
feet, 39 feet (kind of tight on 15m), 58 feet (tight on 10m)

I can fax you the page if you'd like.  I have it right here.  Then you can 
guess as well!
