You can talk worldwide on CB radio,
rsgb are too far up their own @rses to admit it,
many freebanders just happen to know otherwise.

If I could get away with hoiking up a Siggy4, I may actually be able to converse with someone ;)

I sold an Imax I'd bought a year or two back as there was no way I could hide it like the Antron (had bought it for exactly that reason). It would have stuck up nearly 10ft above the conifers whereas the Antron is only about 3ft and just looks like the central part of the conifer. I might be able to get the Antron up a couple of extra foot, but that'd be really pushing it ;)

I wouldn't even entertain a vertical but instead look at running a loop (if the garden is square) round the garden.
I wonder, what's the reason for avoiding a vertical? Is there something specific to OP's situation or do you avoid vericals in general?
