Re: Attic?

I feel your pain, when I became a Ham, my Dad had 1 steadfast rule: No Outdoor Antennas!

Attic antennas work in conventional construction houses with no metal roof.
On 80/40 you don't see all that much loss, and in a 1 story ranch style, they are more than high enough.

My Uncles antennas were all inside the attic, the 40M dipole and the 220 discone. House was wood construction with standard asbestos shingles.
I had a resonant 40M wire dipole in my parents 30' ranch style, and ran a 1 tube home brew CW Xmiter that was rock bound.

The fun thing about wire dipoles in the attic are that you don't have to worry about the WX.
And if you want, instead of burying a wire for a low noise RX antenna, you can use the basement rafters to support a wire antenna there also.

When I moved out and did apartment living, I got a 5 band vertical that I would put on a 5ft section of RS antenna mast. I would pound in all but 1.5 ft and clamp the vertical to it.
Very inconspicuous. Moving antenna involved an old bumper jack and some rope.

Check out the schematic for the SSB-Mite.  It shows how to do it explicitly, and you can just bring that mod directly over to the HiPerMite.


SSS Results

John Lonigro
 

Well, we had a good turnout Sunday night.  Fifteen people entered the contest, three of whom entered for the first time.  Welcome to Peter (AA2VG) from Huntington, NY; Scott (W5ESE) from Dripping Springs, TX; and Woody (K1LB) from Reno, NV.  I hope you three become regular entrants in the 4SQRP Second Sunday Sprints.  And thanks to all for participating.

The winner for May is John (K4BAI) with 29 QSO points. Congratulations to John on is fine score.  For the year, Chas (W2SH) is still in the lead with 81 points, followed by John (K4BAI) with 75 points.  Coming in third is Nick (WB5BKL) with 51 points.  I tally points separately from the website where you enter your score and haven't checked that site lately, to see if we still agree. Hope so.  Unless someone brings a discrepancy to my attention, I'm using my official spreadsheet to determine monthly winners, as well as the overall winner for the year.  And, if there is a discrepancy, I keep screen shots of each month's results and am able to go back and make corrections if necessary.  But, as we all know, I never make mistooks (hi).

Cngratulations again to K4BAI.  He will receive the May certificate for most QSO points shortly.

72 to all and please stay safe,

John, AA0VE

If your roof has the heat reflecting foil it doesn’t work well but regular construction works great.
