WB6RSE has done exceedingly well with his Roof Mounted  rotatable Flag 
antenna that is very close to his transmit vertical. 
See March 2011 QST magazine.

       I am thinking of trying a rotatable flag for 160. 
I have a small lot and the farthest distance I can install the flag from
my tower is 35 feet. Since it will be rotatable I assume I can aim the
at the tower to minimize any intereaction. Is it worth trying or not ?
I read somewhere that the K9AY loop antenna can perform fairly close to
a tower, but how about a flag ?
