I have an old book with lots of suggestions for invisible antennas and one
trick comes to mind. Put up a pole with a small cap or ball on the top, paint 
it white and its then a flagpole (that radiates). Don't forget to fly a flag
on it occasionally. Lots of suggestions too for antennas that disappear when
not in use.

Not sure if the book is still available, its: Wire Antennas by W6SAI in 1972.
