Hi Mike,

For the unlicensed US lowfers, the main barrier to big TX antennas is rather 

FCC 15.207(b) "The total length of the transmission line, antenna, and ground lead 
(if used) shall not exceed 15 meters. "

Despite the lowfer urban myth, I'm afraid there are no exemptions for huge 
"non-radiating" horizontal sections in tees and loops, so the 15-meter rule 
leaves you somewhat limited.

Keep rooting for an LF ham band.
