Re: Antenna Question #antennas #v3


 

Hi Chris,

Of course you can run it inside and zigzaging is no big deal.  Just try to keep the angles less than 90 degrees.

But, listening would be a lot more pleasant with the antenna outside; farther away from all the electronic noise makers inside the apartment.  An option would be an endfed antenna.  It could start at a window or balcony and the end could just be tossed over a tree.  MyAntennas makes some good ones, or you can check out AA5TB's website and make your own.  With the antenna starting on the 3rd floor and the end up in a tree somewere, there would be little chance I think for theives to get at it.
