Back to a ham radio post.  The GR5V antenna seems like a favorite multiband design that is used by quite a few hams.  It is a symmetrical antenna that uses a section of high impedance open wire line as a matching section at the antenna’s feed point.  To truly understand the pro and cons of this antenna, it was very helpful to model it, which I did here in  Revisiting the GR5V Mulit-band Antenna.
