No, there are a couple (2 or 3) tall pine trees in the way, but i managed to pick up stuff (barely) through them with a smaller, (4 bay flat verticle type) homebuilt antenna. Was going to put up the C490 but it's freaking 12 feet long! The poles I have aren't strong enough for that in a big wind. Not to mention the side is facing a neighbor and I would prefer to not get any complaints from him....

P.S should I take a suggestion from your name and ground my mast really well? We usually don't get very many thunderstorms but last year we had a tree strike no more than 1000 feet from the house.
