You won't notice any worthwhile improvement changing the antenna at home if you're already using a half wave. If you're wanting to do DXing when you're out and about make up a dipole for 11m and use a telescopic carp pole or telescopic painters pole to hold up the centre, bringing each leg of the dipole down at an angle. That'll make a great portable DX antenna.
