Those of us who live or have lived on a small urban lot know how difficult it is to design and build an effective HF antenna.  Space and nosey neighbors become major obstacles in your choice of antennas.  In this video uploaded by TWiT Netcast Network, George Thomas (W5JDX) talks with Vito Dipinto (VA3VMD) about his small, yet effective dipole antenna. Despite the limitations of Vito's antenna, he manages to make many contacts from his small urban property.  Vito's simple dipole antenna may offer some hope for radio amateurs facing severe space problems.  You can view the full episode at https://twit.tv/hn/316.
