    Parallel dipole is the easiest antenna to make that will cover 20 and 40 meters. In fact, 15 meters will work as well.

    Just make 2 separate dipoles from wire and then connect the wires to the same center insulator. Basically, what you get is a dipole for each band but that is fed with the same coaxial cable.

    Tune the 40 meter section first (for best SWR). Then tune the 20 meter section. The 40 meter section will work as a 3/2ths wave antenna on 15 meters.

    Many antennas here:


    A multiband dipole here:


    I have talked to a person that has used as many as 6 sets of elements on a multiband dipole.

    Here is mine like the one above:


    And this will also work well for you. Less wire, but you will need a 4:1 balun:


    There is no reason you cannot just use RG-8X or LMR-240 all the way to the balun. Use ferrite snap on beads 10' down from the balun as your "choke balun".

    My best results have been with the dipole elements 90 degrees to each other.
