HI Guys.  I've got a very old Hy Gain Hy Tower mounted per instructions at the 
top of a cliff which is 150f above sea water and about 75 ft back from the high 
water line. The cliff has an angle of repose about 30 degrees and was planted 
with everything I could think of to prevent soil erosion and tumble of and the 
disappearance of hunks of my acreage.
My initial response is to pound dozens of fence posts out and down at the 80 
meter length tangent and aim the wires on around and over the plantings (they 
are nothing of beauty but selected for long roots).I'll get North thru East 
easily this way but the forest on the East side would require snaking wire 
around tree lings and big bushes. So maybe just one of two radial wold go 
easily off to the East.
The water is there too but how to grab it.

Close in I  could drape a wire screen maybe ten ft long on the East but wonder 
if it would be worth it.

Our veggie garden occupies its former home and by now the radial have truly 
buried themselves

I will take some lumps for clearing the base of the antenna  to prevent its use 
as a trellis but that is what married bliss is all about. And she can cook!

I will not accept a hamstick as a replacement as this will be a serious rag 
chew antenna. Even unreasonable responses will be appreciated
