Operating an Amateur/Ham Radio station from a deed-restricted property (HOA.CC&R) is often a daunting challenge. If outdoor HF antennas aren't permitted in your area, perhaps a dipole antenna mounted in your attic will get you on the air without raising the ire of the "antenna police." If your ham radio station is in a wood frame home with non-metal shingles, this idea from K5ACL (SignalSearch) will solve most of your antenna problems. The video takes you step-by-step through the design, construction, and use of an attic HF antenna. Another approach would be to use some kind of magnetic loop antenna, either home-built or commercially made.
