If you're interested, let me or Daryl know. We can get you started
in the right direction. :)
It's certainly worth considering! Antenna might get a bit tricky here
in an apartment complex; have to check and see...
There are ways around that, if you have repeaters nearby...
Don't know, but I'm sure I can find out...
If you have access to the roof you could lay out a ground plane
Impossible to get to the roof, but like Sean mentioned, the gutter system might
prove to be an efficient radiator/receiver. RG8U might be tricky to route out
of the apartment without being obvious, but I can probably find a way to do it
w/o it becoming an issue with the management. Been here for about 8 years now, so they really don't come snooping around my apartment at all; they get their rent on time every month so they really don't have any reason to come here other than an occasional maintenance call.
I don't think I'll have much of a problem, if any, with the technician license.
I'm already a CET (since 1990) in 3 different disciplines (Pro Audio, Consumer and Industrial Electronics with a sub specialty in computer repair.) Admittedly it's been a LONG LONG LONG time since electronics school and the antenna design/implementation part of the course. Graduated from the 2.5 year school in 1969!
... If we can't fix it - its broken!
