Stealth Antennas for Amateur Radio

 

 

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 the bands.
