Vertical whip antenna Pros/Cons ????

Conical Monopole antenna Pros/Cons ????

I extend a very warm welcome to you on behalf of the Radioreference membership. That's an interesting project you have. You probably will get inundated with reviews, opinions & everything else very soon, In the meantime, check out the RR Wiki section on HF antennas & reviews to get your feet wet. I can't help you as I'm really not into HF antennas & wouldn't know a dipole from a monopole. Take care.

PS: Here are some Wikipedia sites you can check out:
