Hi, Lee;

Base loaded verticals work, of course.  It may be easier to lower the 
losses associated with short antennas with top loading, such as the "T" 
or the inverted L.  Top hats work well, too, but the size required may 
not be so practical on an 80 meter antenna.  I recommend that you study 
Jerry Sevick's articles in QST (July 1971, March 1973, and April 1978) 
or his book, "The Short Vertical Antenna and Ground Radial," published 
by CQ Communications.  The book also has a chapter on loading coils that 
examines losses in various models.
