half wave dipole for 80 meters or a ocfd?

I have lots of trees so space is not a concern. But which would be the better antenna .

    Dipole is your best bet. Easier to match and lower loss.

    A resonant dipole will be better than an off center fed dipole. The latter would require an antenna tuner.

    80m says 3.5 to 4 MHz ... what is the exact frequency?

    do you have a swr-meter or a bi-directional watt-meter?
