Antenna for Condo Backyard. Post #1648.

If you need a rapidly deployable, yet stealthy HF antenna in a deed-restricted area, please check out this simple end-fed inverted vee configuration from AC2RJ.  All you need is a tripod support, some wire, a rudimentary ground radial system, a small antenna "tuner", and a telescoping fiberglass pole to elevate your antenna element to begin your backyard adventure. Coupled with a dependable QRP rig such as the Yaesu 817, you'll enjoy some interesting contacts.  When you're done for the day, just collapse the fiberglass mast, fold up the tripod, and store the antenna parts in your garage or shack.
