    Not unless you provide a lot more information...

    What WA7ARK said.
    Besides that the best antenna for your home is a safely installed one that will not cause an accident AND one that uses the best engineering practices one can do. Lots of possibilities beyond that :)

    Meanwhile I have a transformer maybe 20 ft from one side of my house and multiple power lines throughout the property. Then of course there is the metal roof on my house.
    But I have decided to use my radio as a portable one is easier than getting an antenna put up.

    I think the best antennas are found on Aisle 13, next to this popular toy for small children.

    Thank you! ahahah «Equation for the Arquimedean Antenna» is missing, within spiral page... was curious about its complexity.

    Cat's tunnel being made of spiral wire, once wondered about real value of such antennas.

    I have a similar situation at my QTH. If I could still drive then would probably be semi portable. We own an acre plus a little about 10 miles out of town that is much quieter in question of RFI and noise in general.

    Working portable I always see as a sell out.
    I have a dreadful home RF/QRM noisy environment in Central London, hemmed in by a train and railway junction and on the Heathrow airport approach, but still I study and learn and find out how I can improve a hopeless situation. What works and what doesn’t.
    Running out into the hills seems to me like running away and selling out.
    You must understand I am only thinking from my perspective, and I don’t speak for a nation..
    Be good, be humble
