|Thanks for everyone's input. Single end fed may be the only way to go, due to the homes layout there is no opportunity for a counter poise for a vertical, or room in the attic for a wire. I may go with a low cost vertical at the rear of the house just to see what comes back at me from the HOA. Stay tuned and thanks again.|

|New to Ham Radio, 73 years old, not real technical by any means and live in a HOA restricted complex. So restricted the "HOA Committee" uses dental floss as toilet paper. End of jokes, but a serious question. What is the possibility using a single end fed wire antenna and RX/TX effects on HF, but limited to a max of 80 feet in length with a ninety degree bend in the center. 40' running east to west and then 40' north to south along our property line? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
