HRWB057 - Antennas for HOA Restricted Areas

Dr. Jack Mandelman K1VT joins us to talk about being a Ham and living in a neighborhood with an HOA that restricts antenna installations.  We will talk about approaches and some equipment that one can use to be active on HF when living with such restrictions. We also touch on the role that transmitting and receiving magnetic loop antennas can play in getting you on the air from within an HOA restricted area.
