Actually,   a 44 (or 77) ft antenna is not a very "long" wire even at 18 MHz. 
  The term is usually used to describe wires measured in wavelengths as 
opposed to feet and inches, see various ARRL and other antenna books.   

Agree the BC-939 works well when used with the short antennas for which it 
was designed.
