I worked all 40 Zones on 40 and 80 meters to complete my 5BWAZ using half slopers on my tower. They may not be scientific and there may be better antennas, but they do work on occasion. You have to do lots of calling if the pileups are big, but working some of those 40 zones from South Dakota can be a real challenge, not matter what kind of antenna you have, HI!
I've since switched to a BC Trapper with 40 buried radials, which seems to get through the pileups much quicker.
