This is post 2429 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to "Stancoyote" for this upbeat, inspirational antenna project for radio amateurs  impacted by deed-restrictions on their property (HOA/CC&Rs).

A properly designed random wire combined with a UnUn balun and a wide-range "tuner" can often get you on the air when nothing else will.

Here are some general comments about the antenna from Stan:

If you are antenna challenged and need to keep a low profile, then a small gauge random wire is often the answer. However, if your shack is deep inside your house, how do you avoid RFI when connecting your rig to the end of the antenna? Here's how I handled it.


Thanks for joining us today.
