I have a brainstorm for an HF antenna. I'm limited as to how long a wire I can run for an HF antenna, but I have a 4 strand high tensile wire fence for our horses that covers about 3 acres. The top wire is run through insulators at every post & was connected to a fence charger. The charger no longer works, so it won't be a problem. The fence is continuos, but could be unhooked on one side to make a long wire or split it. If I run coax to the fence, fasten the middle wire to the top fence wire & run the shield wire to the ground, would it work for an HF antenna? My radio has a built in tuner, so it should tune.
Does anyone know if this would work and does anyone know of someone who has tried this system?
I would appreciate any any comments or info anyone can provide.
