Besides the idea you are now always going
to operating "net control”, this badminton net is actually
fully functional as an antenna too. So be sure to invite some
people over from the HOA to help improve your score. They will
never know it's an antenna.
9. The Bicycle Prop Antenna.
This is a good antenna situation especially
for apartment dwellers with balconies or condo dwellers with small
outdoor patios. However, it also works well in other situations
too such as urban family dwellings in HOA's. You can attach your
favorite screwdriver antenna (or even a 20 foot telescopic crappie
pole) to a bicycle but be sure it has a nice orange flag on top.
Since this antenna is actually mounted
on the bicycle itself, it's not really considered to be an antenna
installed on the house by the HOA, so no one will actually care
about it being installed on your bicycle.
The bicycle should be placed (permanently
stored?) in a desirable location like up against a wooden fence,
(a metal fence makes a nice ground plane) beside a tree or even
resting up against a patio deck, patio furniture etc.… Geez, those
darn kids are always parking their bikes just about anywhere huh?
Chain it up wherever you decide to leave
this bicycle in permanent storage and run some bury flex feed
line underground. Attach buried radials around the base of the
bicycle if you like and take your bicycle antenna for a spin around
