Ok as you know i don't want to upset the neighbours by throwing up a large antenna so i was thinking of a dipole as these can be either vertically or horizontally mounted i think mine will be vertical as im thinking of mounting it on a tree which more or less would be hidden from view so no upset, any thoughts thanks

I know a ham operator who hides his antennas in trees etc.
So why not .

Personally I'm sticking my antenna up where I want and if my neighbour complains I'll return the compliment over
His dogs constantly barking 👍🤣
