This is post 2298 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to OH8STN for this helpful suggestion for radio amateurs operating in deed-restricted (HOA/CC&R) properties. 

One way to get on the air without being seen is by using a stealth or hidden antenna in your attic.  In this case a magnetic loop antenna can get you on the air without too much trouble. 

Here are some additional comments from OH8STN:

Hello Operators A former colleague and good friend in Ukraine, asked about a stealth antenna, and how it might work for his situation. The operator asked about magnetic loop antennas for HF, and if they could be would be completely hidden from view, by the surrounding community. In this video, I am using an attic mounted magnetic loop antenna, with a remote control for tuning. The Antenna is the Chameleon F-LOOP with the RTRR rotator Tuner. Globally ham radio operators are finding it increasingly more difficult to deploy large HF antennas for amateur radio. In many cases they are limited by homeowners associations, deed restrictions, lack necessary space, … For some operators living in conflict zones, putting up a large antenna array for HF communications may bring unwanted attention. In North America, the ARRL has backed the Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2017. It was introduced in the US Senate on July 12, marking another extremely small step forward for radio amateurs restricted by HOA or deep restrictions.. Senators Roger Wicker (R-MS) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) are the Senate sponsors. The measure will, for the first time, guarantee all radio amateurs living in deed-restricted communities governed by a homeowner's association (HOA) or subject to any private land use regulations, the right to erect and maintain effective outdoor antennas at their homes. The Senate bill, S. 1534, is identical to H.R. 555, which passed the US House of Representatives in January. http://chameleonantenna.com/PORTABLE%...
