I've had good luck with a simple closed loop, large, 20 - 50 feet up. Large = 300 foot on a side... your size may vary, although as long as it is about a wavelength in circumference, there should be a plenty of signal to work with. 
  The Adcock antenna would be work looking at for a smaller version. 
  As for the beverages, a single 1/4 radial worked here for some very poor soil. 
  A short loaded vertical may turn some decent results too.
Hope to see you on 160 this year!--... ...--Dale - WC7S in Wy
