I have an end fed running along the top of a wood stockade fence. I can get it about 10 feet higher but it will be about 4 feet from a metal guard rail. Is that too close?

The only way to find out is to give it a try. Sort of like choosing hot pepper sauce for food. One person's "too hot" is another's mild.

Typically you need a better antenna to do voice than
CW/data. WSJT and the digital mode FT8 are very popular for hams starting out on HF.
