im moving house in a few weeks, ive meet one of my neighbours and really dont think he will like any sort of antenna at all.  i was thinking just to piss him of put up one off the antennas of the 80s a pdl2 on a 30 foot pole, but i dont want any trouble (would have done 20 years ago lol) got any ideas expect using a wire as i know how to that and got a few of then
regards
dave

I wish you well with your house move Dave (nothing more stressful!) and hope you get sorted out antenna wise.

For me to live a quiet village life all my antennas are hidden in the loft space being 'wire' affairs and even on CB frequencies I can manage some DX but cross-polarisation makes local work difficult. (Not that there's a lot on in my area anyway.)

When I have 'played' in my own back garden with magnetic loops and verticals despite the six foot fence panels a nose always manages to appear asking if it will wipe out their Wi-Fi or stop their washing machine mid-cycle. Rolling Eyes

Could be worse, you might have had a new neighbour with a roof line resembling a porcupine with many antennas erected wiping out any chance of you getting on air at all with their RF emanations! Sometimes it's nice to be in the 'minority' hobby interest. (I have a close by 2m repeater which swamps my front end whenever it 'peeps' even right down in the SSB section. Evil or Very Mad )

Exciting times though, starting an antenna farm anew and here's hoping you have enough space for a nice warm indoor radio room. home base antena 1f44d 



All the best,
Victor

thanks victor and thanks for joining in my other tread as well. i might just go quite for a while and slowly put a antenna up when i want to use it and take it down 
. and gradually leave it there then higher it slowly over months so they dont realise what im doing

Ha! Ha! Very Happy Love it Dave, the 'Ninja' approach to stealthy antenna erection. Best of luck. home base antena 1f44d
