Topband: What do you use as a "RUN" Antenna?

The best omnidirectional "RUN" setup for 160M is using a transceiver
with dual high performance receivers in stereo diversity so you can
listen with two antennas simultaneously.  I've used both the K3/KRX3
and Orion/RX366 and they're the only rigs I'd recommend for serious
160M running in diversity.

I've got a home brew Beverage switch box with a foot switch input so I
can listen hands-free in 2+2=4 directions for callers

I am doing the beverages with understanding neighbors who allow me to string them along above their fences.
