Antennas / Antenna Camouflage
December 27, 2019, 12:13:42 pm
Was thinking about using a Spiderbeam mast in an urban environment.  Little white houses, small yards, big old trees.  Was wondering if a Spiderbeam mast could take a coat of paint, and still be able to extend and fold back together okay.  And what colors of paint, glossy or flat etc, would make it less visible among the little white houses, grey roofs, big green trees, and a blue or grey sky.

Any ideas on using a 36 ft end fed half wave on this type of structure would be appreciated as well.  Am trying from the side to a back tree and back to the house in a funky horizontal V shape now.  Hesistant to lay it directly on the roof to get more height, but concerned the swr would suffer.  Experimentation has been slow due to weather, dragging a ladder about, and the roof it not safe to walk up, although I can reach the peaks with a ladder.
