Don't let restrictive housing covenants (HOAs/CC&Rs) stop you from enjoying VHF/UHF activities in your area.  If you follow the suggestions from Scott (K2ZS), you'll have an efficient, effective VHF/UHF antenna that can operate indoors out of the earshot of noisy neighbors.

Scott's VHF Delta Loop is easy to build and can be for both home and field use.

Scott's article discusses the following topics:

General design characteristics of the VHF Delta Loop.
Construction procedures.
Feed point connectivity
Polarization.
Weak signal use.

I've built a few of these delta loop antennas for 2 meters and they work very well.

According to Scott, you can't beat the price and convenience of this homemade antenna:

There is no need to spend money for some special antenna that claims to be the best in compromised conditions. The entire cost of this experiment was $ 0.00 because everything came from my junk box. If you don’t have the parts on hand but have a hamfest coming in the near future you might plan on around $ 3.00 for connectors and insulators.
