Best HOA friendly antenna, discrete and stealthy.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/Y473hOmif-E This is post 2363 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. In this video from "Ron C", we explore the potential of what  Ron C calls his "Broadband Butterfly Terminated Dipole Antenna."   The antenna fits snugly inside of Ron C's attic and gives good performance in a highly compromised antenna location.  You may want to try Ron C's idea if your current HOA/CC&R antenna is performing poorly. --- For the latest Amateur/Ham Radio news and information, please visit these websites: http://www.HawaiiARRL.info. http://www.arrl.org. http://www.hamradioupdate.com. http://www.southgatearc.org. https://www.blubrry.com/arrlaudionews https://oahuarrlnews.wordpress.com. https://hamradiohawaii.wordpress.com. https://bigislandarrlnews.com. https://www.eham.net. https://paper.li/f-1576465810 (breaking Amateur/Ham Radio News). --- Thanks for

Best HOA friendly antenna, discrete and stealthy. Post 1951.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y473hOmif-E. Here's another antenna idea for those living in deed-restricted housing (HOAs/CC&Rs). Ron C. calls this attic-mounted antenna a "Broadband Butterfly Terminated Dipole" Antenna.  According to Ron C., this BBTD antenna covers 1.8 MHz to 54 MHz with a SWR of less that 2:1. Some of the Buxcom parts cited in this post may be found at Palomar Engineers. You'll also need a High-Z Balun (16:1) and a well-built antenna "tuner" to get maximum efficiency out of this antenna.  According to Ron C., no one can see this antenna from the street, making it "discrete and stealthy."
