IC-7300 using gutter antenna or stealth Ham Radio

If you live in deed-restricted housing, you may find this unusual antenna from "Rich Rodgers Online" (WB5YBZ) another way of getting and staying on air.

Rich was successful in modifying his home gutter system to work several HF Ham Radio bands.

Here are some comments from Rich:

Using and Icom IC 7300 the antenna is the gutter. If you tuck in the wiring under the eves of the house, this gutter antenna could be a great stealth antenna for your Ham Radio.
