I have the same issue that you have. Iron-clad CCR and a big attic. I have
not yet operated much below 20m. 20m and above, my antennas work quite well
(I even have a rotatable 3-el beam for 6m)
I have been meaning to try Hamstick dipoles for 30 & 40 meters. Of course,
one can do the same for 80m. While I am sure Hamstick dipoles would be
rather inefficient, such a setup might get guys like us presence on the
band, and might even be a step above a dummy load.
Just a thought...
