>I'd like to put up some sort of skyhook for supporting inverted Vs.  My
>problem is our Homeowners Assn that precludes towers, obnoxious looking
>antennas, etc.  My property behind my house slopes downward and is covered
>with oak trees, but none of them very tall. I could probably sneak up some
>sort of wooden pole down there.  I'd like it to be at least 40' but 50'
>would be better.  Cedar poles like the power companies use are very
>expensive here and would require special equipment to erect.  I'm not
>adverse to some guy wires, but not too many.  I heard a guy the other day
>that used wooden dowels that are normally used for hanging clothing in a
>closet, but that sounds way too unsubstantial, particularly at that height.
>Of course, there is a 50' TV pushup tower, but those require guy wires
>10 feet, and the guy wires alone would attract attention.
>Anybody got any good ideas?
