Sounds like a cracking idea, I have had to look further into wire antennas since the almost immediate complaints came in over a silver rod basically, I have a neighbour, two in fact within a few streets and they have full size flagpoles in their gardens with a selection of flags being flown I notice which are far more offensive to the eye than my poor half wave vertical which only the tip can be seen from the front of the house pretty much. I managed to pick up a 10M fishing pole second hand (clearly unused) with a wire antenna and Unun for HF but its the wire antenna for 11m I want to give a go with it side by side against the half wave Ringo vertical. I was now thinking of putting a couple of co-linear's up on the chimney as they fit with the planning regulations, more or less at least.
