Every once in a while, I come across a simple antenna idea that may be useful in areas governed by restrictive HOAs and CC & Rs.  The "on the earth" antenna designed by Robert McGregor (VK3XZ) is such an idea.  I built one of these  "earth hugging" antennas and was pleasantly surprised just how well it worked.  The performance of this earth-bound wire will not rival that of a 3-element yagi on a 50-ft/15.24 meters tower, but it will get you on the air without being seen.  Another case of "out of sight, out of mind."  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
