I was thinking about an antenna with some gain....
Home brew a 3 Element Yagi or a 2 element Delta loop or Quad.
Both have about the same gain, and are light weight and easy to turn with a small rotor.

When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
but I have become comfortably numb.

if you already have a omni a small beam would be much more effective than a more expensive/bigger antenna .
for a very tight budget the workman 58 for less than $80 shipped is a decent antenna .

W-58 Omni-Directional Antenna - Palco Electronics

and the Hy-Gain SPT-500 Super Penetrator for $170ish shipped should be stronger physically .

Hy-Gain SPT-500 Super Penetrator HF Vertical Antennas - DXEngineering.com

don't know if i would trust a vector 4000 in the storms/hurricanes we get here sometimes . if i had more confidence in it's physical strength it would be my first choice .
