Can I have a couple opinions please, on whether or not the 7' aluminum vertical pole at the far end of my 100' wire that the wire is tied off to with a 4" insulator, will affect reception off that wire end which is pointed right at the pole? Or does it not have any affect at all-thanks.

This is an endfed wire BTW

Virtually no effect except a very, very slight bit of end loading as a result of the proximity in terms of wavelength.
