The best, and most cost effective, receiving antennas out there are the Hi-Z 
Antennas triangle, 4-square and 8-circle arrays. I have the triangle array and 
it works fantastic. I has 6 electrically switched directions and a great F/B 
ratio. It is essentially equivalent to having six 500 foot beverages when 
looking at the Receive Direction Factor (RDF).

Right now the Hi-Z web site is shut down due to the lawsuit by PDS Electronics 
(DX Engineering) alleging a patent infringement. Even if the plaintiff wins all 
the info on the Hi-Z antennas will end up on the internet and you'll be able to 
build your own...It'll just be a matter of time.
