"Remingtonh" offers another antenna solution for radio amateurs living in deed-restricted housing. As he explains, the heart of his stealth HF antenna is the MFJ-1979 1/4 wavelength 20 meter telescoping antenna: "In this video a demo a working HOA stealth HF transmitting antenna solution using the MFJ-1979 (1/4 wave 20-meter telescoping vertical), RadioWavz "Patriot 80" adjustable loading coil, Hustler mast, MFJ-909 capacitive matcher.

HOA Stealth Backyard Vertical 10m-80m Antenna - MFJ-1979, RadioWavz P-80

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4W5FFX3movg Here's a nicely done multiband vertical antenna suitable for radio amateurs living in deed-restricted properties (HOAs/CC&Rs) or  lacking space to erect a full 1/2 wavelength horizontal dipole.  All you need is some creativity, a few spare parts, and a good radial system. In this video, the antenna consists of a MFJ-1979 (1/4 wave 20-meter telescoping mast) a RadioWavz "Patriot 80: adjustable loading coil, a Hustler mast, and a MFJ-909 capacitive meter.  The key to making this homebrew vertical antenna is using a decent radial system and loss loss coaxial cable feed line.  An antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") could also be added to keep SWR losses low.  Such a system could also be employed for portable use during the ARRL Field Day, SOTA expeditions, or just casual operations in a public park.
