Operating an amateur radio station from deed-restricted housing (HOA/CC&Rs) can be a difficult, often frustrating experience. Yet, with a little ingenuity and creativity, a decent HF signal can be launched from your restricted home, apartment, or condominium location.

In this video from N4CPB ("videosbymike"), we see how the popular Alpha Multiband HF Antenna can be used for amateur radio operations from a severely restricted space--in this case, Mike's Florida condominium unit. Mike's operating conditions aren't ideal. Please note that about 10-feet/3.048 meters of his antenna are blocked by the outdoor patio wall of his apartment.  Despite the restrictions, Mike is able to get some good contacts with this Alpha Multiband HF Antenna.  If you don't own one of these antennas, try making a small magnetic loop antenna, which many radio amateurs use in cramped operating conditions.
