If there is no place for regular loop or dipole I suggest to build http://www.tc2m.info/TC2M%20HF%20Vertical%20G8JNJ.pdf
I use it with my sdr rx and works fine compared to loop antennas I own.

Do not bother about high power resistors. Since antenna will be used to rx only you can use 0.25W ones.

Your first picture has a mixture of microwave, UHF and VHF antennas speeddemon, not much use on a 735.
