Have you considered a roof tower? I put up one 20+ years ago, and have been
very satisfied with it. The model I have has a built in ladder, which makes
access to the components easy. The antennas obviously clear the house, and
all but the tallest trees. How tall a tower depends on the longest length
of antenna you plan to install. They are easy to install on a shingle or
similar roof, not so easy on a Spanish style or shake roof. I have used
somewhat sturdier anchors than are usually recommended.
