Below is a link for various antennas for MW and SW listening. The article is by a Canadian radio ham who needs rugged antennas that take the harsh Canadian climate. They vary from longwires, inverted vees, slopers to compact loaded delta loops for those pushed for space.

Also in the article is a description of various baluns needed. The diagrams are very basic, but it all seems to be there.

Here are some other antenna sites that I have bookmarked over the years. Much more complete than the above. If you only want to receive the trouble is ignoring the stuff you don't need where high current handling is needed for transmission.
