Stealth Antennas

Its early Friday night in NJ and I am trolling the web for ideas about putting together an stealth antenna using some magnet wire. Yes I need a life!

So far thinking of going with an inverted vee with fishing line as insulators. Magnet wire is just about invisible but not very strong. This should keep the neighbors who seem to have nothing to do at bay, not that I care, but it would be nice to operate under cover. Yes as I have mentioned before I have a small lot, only one tree by the patio that is not very big.

Back to web searching and hopefully get some wire in the air tomorrow. This should be a fun easy project. Details to follow.

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Hi Jim, I hope you can set up your stealth antenna. Neighbours could be very critical. Good luck and have a nice weekend. 73 Paul

  2. Hi Paul,

    The neighbors are not to bad but I like to keep a low profile. Hope you had a nice weekend. Jim

  3. Good personal preference is an indoor mounted Isotron.

  4. Hi Jspiker,

    Might have to check out an Isotron. Stay cool in the heat! Jim
