Finally, an HF antenna (well sort of)

After the 2011 Field Day, I definitively got the bug to do HF.  However, our house is on an extremely small lot and antennas are not prohibited but aren't on anyone's roof.

This is my current solution.  We shall see how long I get away with it.  During the slideshow below you can click on any photo to get a bigger version over on my Picasa page.

In addition to the HF wire, we needed 2 meter and 70 centimeter antenna for working with the Kent Communications Support Team.  The final two photos show this one atop a 20 foot flag pole which is mounted to our upper deck which is another 10 feet above the ground.
