I'm going to put together a portable system that's easy to throw in the 
car when needed.  3 pieces of 1.5" PVC 5' long and associated hardware.

Here's some good NVIS Info:

It mentions the NVIS antenna I've seen and will be modeling my portable 
setup after:

A full Power Point preentation (big) is there as presented by "N7NVP and 
W6QJI":

The Home antenna is going to be a simple 102' G5RV mounted not too high.
