Well the thought was there lol I've got a venom 1/2 wave by gain at the moment but might get something better for home and use that for going out (getting away from the wife) lol thanks for the info much appreciated

Many thanks Chris 73's

You won't notice any worthwhile improvement changing the antenna at home if you're already using a half wave. If you're wanting to do DXing when you're out and about make up a dipole for 11m and use a telescopic carp pole or telescopic painters pole to hold up the centre, bringing each leg of the dipole down at an angle. That'll make a great portable DX antenna.
