full wave antenna worth it?

so i have a hypothetical question... so hypothetically if you had the land and the materials to achieve it, is there any advantage to making a full wave antenna for HF bands all the way down to the 2200M band. or is it even possible to use current materials to do so? what would be the advantages vs disadvantages for full wave over say a 1/4 wave antenna?

You would get more gain but the impedance especially at the low frequencies would be unreasonably high and the antenna would not be very resonant on most ham frequencies if 2200m in length.
