Introduction • Most Hams want a large antenna • Most don’t get one. 5 Introduction • Most Hams want a large antenna • Most don’t get one. 5 -band-10/12/15/17/20 Meters, 11 Elements. Price: $1159. 95

Why Not? • Cost: Antennas and towers are quite expensive. • Zoning: Restrictive covenants Why Not? • Cost: Antennas and towers are quite expensive. • Zoning: Restrictive covenants make it difficult and expensive to put up a large antenna array • Space: Many homes/condos/apartments do not have the space • Spouse: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Solution: Stealth Antennas • It turns out that an antenna does not have to Solution: Stealth Antennas • It turns out that an antenna does not have to be BIG to work • It does not have to be outside to work • It does not have to be high powered to work • It does not have to be permanent to work

What is Needed • An attic, a porch, a deck, a flagpole, or even What is Needed • An attic, a porch, a deck, a flagpole, or even a ceiling • A tuner • A good set of speakers or headphones • Patience • An occasional contest

The N 8 HKU Condo • No outside antennas • Antennas covering 10 m-80 The N 8 HKU Condo • No outside antennas • Antennas covering 10 m-80 m, 144, 440 MHz

The Condo Antenna Farm • SPI-RO trap dipole for 10 -20 M • Isotron The Condo Antenna Farm • SPI-RO trap dipole for 10 -20 M • Isotron combo antennas for 40 M and 80 M • Cushcraft Ringo Ranger 2 m/70 cm Vertical

Getting the Antennas in the Space Trap dipole across the attic, bent to “see” Getting the Antennas in the Space Trap dipole across the attic, bent to “see” Europe Need to trim them to resonance Metal can interfere with them

Resonance of Dipole after Trimming No tuner needed for 20 m. Other bands can Resonance of Dipole after Trimming No tuner needed for 20 m. Other bands can be tuned, including WARC bands of 12 M and 17 M.

Other Antennas • Isotron antennas needed significant trimming, and still need tuning. • Ringo Other Antennas • Isotron antennas needed significant trimming, and still need tuning. • Ringo Ranger had horrible transmission to the Tin Lizzy until I moved it 1 ft over, now great reception

Power • May not be a good idea to run full power – Interference Power • May not be a good idea to run full power – Interference potential with home electronics • Issue with home stereo – RF Exposure needs to be analyzed for both yourself and for others in the house or in the adjoining units • I performed a full analysis – RF can get into your equipment • Keyboard acts up on 10 m • Needed to add an isolation choke between my radio and computer to keep RF out of the speaker system

Where have I worked? • United States – 40 M/80 M is within 1, Where have I worked? • United States – 40 M/80 M is within 1, 000 miles only due to near vertical sky bounce – Oregon/Washington tough • ROW: – Russia, South America, U. K, Germany, Israel, Australia, Finland, Italy, Croatia, Spain, Netherlands, Japan • All of that on SSB – Contests help: late in contest, all the Big Guns have been worked, and the operators listen better for the weaker signals • Many countries worked on RTTY or PSK 31 as well. – Can use less power – Signals are stronger – Less atmospheric interference
