If you live in a deed-restricted antenna environment (HOA/CC&R), this indoor loop from Joe Baille may enable you to get on the air.  According to Joe, he used 86 feet/26.219 meters of #16 AWG wire to form a two-turn loop around the ceiling of his apartment. He used a CG-3000 automatic antenna "tuner" to work several HF bands.  Although there is no commentary or test data provided by Joe, the antenna seems to work.  As long as you keep power below 10 watts you should have no problems with rfi.
