Vertical Antenna in a HOA. Post #1129.

Here's a well-produced video from Kevin, whose antenna experience in a deed-restricted environment (HOA/CC&R), can help you get on the air from a small urban lot.  The antenna is the popular and highly rated Zero-Five 40 through 10 meter vertical antenna.  Using a LDG tuner with his HF transceiver, Kevin was able to make several successful contacts from this restricted space.  You could also make a similar vertical antenna from a telescoping fiberglass pole, some household wire, a simple ground radial/counterpoise system, and a wide-range antenna "tuner."  Let your imagination be your guide. Don't let space limitations stop you from enjoying Amateur Radio.
