Here's another simple antenna solution for radio amateurs living in deed-restricted properties (HOAs and CC&Rs).  In this video from "remingtonh", we see how a MFJ-1620T "hamstick", a simple ground radial system, and a small tripod can get you on the air.  The system is portable, easy to set up, and can be disguised by the natural features of your property.  This antenna would make an excellent addition to your emergency "go kit".
