Best HOA friendly antenna, discrete and stealthy. Post 1951.

Here's another antenna idea for those living in deed-restricted housing (HOAs/CC&Rs).

Ron C. calls this attic-mounted antenna a "Broadband Butterfly Terminated Dipole" Antenna.  According to Ron C., this BBTD antenna covers 1.8 MHz to 54 MHz with a SWR of less that 2:1.

Some of the Buxcom parts cited in this post may be found at Palomar Engineers.

You'll also need a High-Z Balun (16:1) and a well-built antenna "tuner" to get maximum efficiency out of this antenna.  According to Ron C., no one can see this antenna from the street, making it "discrete and stealthy."
