Here are some comments from Billy (KN4MKB):

I've been rocking an EFHW out of apartment windows for 5-6 years now in 3 different locations. I'm hoping to move into a house soon so I thought it would be a good idea to share my methodology just in case it works for someone else. The antenna is almost obvious when you pay attention, but this works because people don't. Most people won't pay attention to old wire in the air, just don't make a fuss, and once it's up there, leave it alone. Keep RFI from coming into your apartment, and don't be weird. 00:00 Intro 01:00 My Method 02:00 Apartment Shopping 03:00 Window Passthough 04:25 Antenna Throwing 08:00 Result 09:00 Tips 12:30 Outro ➡️Join this channel to get access to perks⬅️    / @modernham   ★★★ IMPORTANT LINKS★★★ ✅Follow My Instagram-   / modernham   ✅Follow My Twitter-   / hammodern   ✅Blog and Merch - https://themodernham.com Gear I use (Amazon Affiliate Link) 🔥 https://amazon.com/shop/modernham ⚡ Join the ModernHams Discord: ⚡   / discord
