Operating from a deed-restricted home, apartment, or condominium can be a genuine challenge. Out-door antennas often perform better than the wires designed for indoor or limited spaces. Alternatives to outdoor dipoles, verticals, and yagi beams can be found with magnetic loop antennas, indoor loops, and even mobile antennas adapted for indoor use.
Such is the case in this post by Mark Etzey, who uses the popular Yaesu ATAS 120A mobile antenna for his small apartment. If you carefully adjust the antenna and use an indoor counterpoise system, you can get on the air with a usable signal. Mark offers several helpful suggestions for radio amateurs who want to use a HF mobile antenna for their home station.
