They look like an Umbrella with out the canvas, and have a whip ontop. They are a broard band aerial that means they cover a wide selection of frequencies. Have a look at SRPtrading.com / Hamradio.com / Nevada.co.uk or by a copy of Shortwave magazine.

Like All aerials hight is the most important.

And it all depends on what you whant to listen to.

I'd recommend a discone to anybody, with a good pre-amp as well as the discone, it work's a treat.
