I did see where that antenna (Norway??) was knocked over in a storm. I imagine that's going to cost a few bucks to get back up. My EFHW (the 8010 from MyAntenna) is really not bad, I just envy those who have a tower and rotatable beam. I've talked to Roberto near Milan Italy and he has a 40M beam on a 160' tower. However, he also points out that he's not even above the surround hilltops, so we all have problems, no matter what. I'm lucky to have tall trees, plus I'm about 700' higher than the Ohio river.

It's unfortunate she had you take down that other antenna.
If it's high enough the neighbors won't even see it, especially on a cloudy day.
So, exactly what do you have in the way of a crappy EFHW, and what matching network?
Why is it crappy?
Then I'll know what not to do.
If you want stealth, that's a good way to go.
Some skinny wire, perhaps galvanized steel for strength, and a matchbox on the side of the house
are much harder to see than coax going up to the middle of a dipole.
