Never underestimate the creativity of amateur radio operators.  In this video, we see how KF4BWG uses horse fence wire to make and operate a multiband HF dipole antenna.  If you have a metal fence on your property, consider using it for either the antenna or part of a ground radial system. You may be surprised how well this "antenna of convenience" works.
