This is the time of year that many of us in the Northern Hemisphere have been waiting for. 
 DX is coming up, long and stronger. Many 'old timers'  have their antennas  "ready to roll". 
New comers to the band may want an inexpensive starter receive antenna, If there is space
a beverage is a good forgiving antenna. 
For limited space:
Despite some criticizing,  a loop antenna can result in many DX contacts. Even SWL's in the AM radio  BCB like them. 
Yes there are always better antennas, but many of us started with in-expensive wire types.
