FWIW our antenna (Winegard SquareShooter) is mounted behind the
chimney and clears it vertically by about 6" so that it isn't
prominent from the street. Can't mess up 'curb appeal' in southern
California. The chimney has no metal in it that I know of but it was
built in '85, 19 years before we bought the house. BTW it works very
well with no problems during rain or wind.
In general you want to be a half wavelength or more from nearby
metallics. At channel 14 this will be about a foot.
