Thin black wire is really hard to see. I struggle to get the sun in just the right position to be able to shoot photographs of people can at least SEE my 3 antennas....toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
300ohm window line is fairly hard to see, also.
I have made insulators from quarter inch plastic stiff tubes before.... left over from medical supplies.
braided fishing line can be had up to 80 pounds strength, and it’s flat impossible to see, if you buy dark green. I use bright orange to even have a prayer of finding it after I shoot it over trees.
Run it to a balun at the back of your house. Instant near zero-loss center fed , off center-fed, whatever you want Antenna.
If you want vertical, run it along side the trunk of a good tree. Or put in a really proud flagpole!
