Stealth HOA Antenna.

If you live in an apartment, condo, or home governed by HOAs and CC&Rs, you know how difficult erecting a HF antenna can be.

In this video from Simon Stribbling (VA7BIX), we see how some ethernet cable and a few lengths of jewelry wire can get you on the air without disturbing your neighbors.

Simon takes you step-by-step through the design, building, testing, and use of this HOA "stealth" antenna.
