Simple Ham Radio Antennas--2 Meter Window Apartment Antenna. Post #636.


If you're have trouble viewing this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/2bMNm57YUbA. Like many radio amateurs living in deed-restricted apartments and homes (HOAs/CC&Rs), Daniel Devine faced serious issues getting a 2 meter antenna erected in his apartment. In this video, Daniel created this somewhat unusual design for his 2 meter activity.  Daniel says any kind of outdoor antenna was prohibited in his apartment complex, so he came up with this unconventional design.  Daniel says this homebrew antenna works and he is able to once again enjoy 2 meter contacts with local radio amateurs.  Perhaps, you can improve Daniel's design and, thereby, find a way to get back on the air.  Even a compromise antenna is better than no antenna.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free email subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.
