Stealth Indoor HF Ham Radio Antenna

Radio amateurs living in deed-restricted homes and apartments often have difficult antenna problems.

Josh Bloom, like many of his fellow ham operators, was able to get on the air with a bit of experimentation by stringing some wire around his room. 

What this antenna lacks in efficiency is outweighed by its "stealthy' and nearly invisible presence.  Using digital modes with his ICOM-7300, Josh was able to make a 2500 mile/4050 kilometer contact.

The important thing to remember is to never give up--a compromise antenna is better than no antenna.

Here are some of Josh's comments:

This is a very short video on my 10-75 meter wire antenna mounted inside my house due to my landlord. Works pretty well and very easy to do. I happen to be using JT8Call, but any digital mode would be fine. Voice could work, but make sure to keep the power reasonable. Here's a link to the antenna I'm using.
