Apr24 22:49 Still looking for a cheap SDR dongle to record unattended. - En35 (
Apr24 22:21 Will be out on Friday, planning a hike in north Central WA as I am off work that day. Probably near Coulee City, in between Wenatchee and Spokane. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr24 22:17 Sorry Lee - I bought the Stellar Labs one. Jim/MO is getting me some coax and a VHF dipole. Es season is almost...just almost...set. Channel 2 on the box, unattended FM recordings, why didn't I think about this years ago? Wouldn't have missed the super 5-10-13 opening! > Yakima CN96 (
Apr24 21:58 [4/22, 19:35] Whoa! That antenna (HBD91X) is down to $30 shipped from Amazon! (Hmmm...) // Lee VA FM17io (
Apr24 20:28 (18:52) Just imagine that over WI/MN! Then I'd definitely be into the Dakotas - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (
Apr24 18:53 Sorry, I guess that's the Arabian Sea./cd (
Apr24 18:52 The Persian Gulf, white with foam./cdEL96 (
Apr24 13:48 Tr 101.1 CICW Fergus, ON, "The Grand @ 101". 67 mi. New! - de Jon in FN03 (
Apr24 12:48 The Mediterranean commonly goes into the gray & white realm./cdEL96 (
Apr24 11:23 [22:05] Egad! I've never seen some of those colors on Hepburn's maps before...entirely outside the scope of his pallette below--Frank M. (
Apr24 11:21 [22:05] Egad (
Apr24 03:50 All in all, I don't have to pay for 300 stupid cable channels, and maybe get the thrill of VHF Es at the same time! > Yakima CN96 (
Apr24 03:48 I might be able to clamp it w/ permission from apt. maintenance. But it will have to be a clamping method in which I will have to take it DOWN during inspections and whatnot...or they might give me 30 days notice! > Yakima CN96 (
Apr24 03:45 Yes that might be, but those seven other tenants don't have outdoor access to your balcony - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Apr24 03:43 The rule does not apply to television antennas used to receive a distant signal. -Jerry (
Apr24 03:39 I don't live in an exclusive apartment. I share the building with seven other tenants > Yakima CN96 (
Apr24 03:38 [0231] There are still tenants WITH satellite dishes. Apartment next to us has a DirecTV dish on the ground. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr24 03:34 A restriction necessary to prevent damage to leased property may be reasonable. -Jerry (
Apr24 03:28 I should say, his apartment has a private use balcony. He doesn't share it with any other apartments (
Apr24 03:27 Jerry - we are specifically talking about Yakima's situation. His apartment has private use balconies. Nothing more, nothing less - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr24 03:25 As long as the UHF yagi does not protrude past the exterior balcony wall he is safe - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Apr24 03:25 balconies or patios that are shared with other people or are accessible from other units are not considered to be exclusive use areas -Jerry (
Apr24 03:22 Yakima could easily make a temporary mount (like C-clamps) to hold his antenna in place, as long as he doesn't damage or deface the property - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr24 03:22 JimT: Yes I have viewed them - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Apr24 03:20 Half way down that page, they hit that point in three or four questions. Your balcony is your private use area, no one else has access to it - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr24 03:20 As long as the antenna and mast is used in an 'Excluse Use' area [balcony in this case] in which only you, and persons you permit may enter and to the exclusion of other residents - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Apr24 03:20 Balconies of apartments are protected by the FCC law, as a private use area - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr24 03:12 The rule does not apply to common areas, such as the roof or the exterior walls of an apartment building. -Jerry (
Apr24 03:07 JAW, did you look at those balconies at his apt complex? That link below has the stuck at the beginning, so you have to lose that part of the link - de JimT/MO (
Apr24 03:04 If the landlord is enforcing an invalid restriction then call the FCC toll-free @ 1-888-CALL-FCC (225-5322) - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Apr24 02:47 [02:39] C-clamping it like Jim has said should also work. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr24 02:44 [02:36] Yakima, by looking at those balconys it does look like you have room with a Tripod - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr24 02:39 By C-clamping it, he can put it up and take it down as needed - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr24 02:36 AM, that's not necessary for pics. Follow this link - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr24 02:34 I say that if Yak is on the 2nd floor, he should take a 18" sat dish arm, mount it to a board so the arm stands up straight, mount the antenna to the arm, then C-clamp the board to the balcony railing while in use - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr24 02:32 Yakima, can you take a pictures of different views of your balcony? I like to see the size of it - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr24 02:31 At least up until a year ago, there were tenants in Yak's apt complex with DTV/DN satellite dishes installed - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr24 02:29 Sometimes you have to get creative with restrictive antenna rules. Since you already have flower pots on your balcony. You can put the Leaf-50 under a clay flower pot - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Apr24 02:25 [02:09] but no chance to null out two stations on same RF channel with the Leaf-50 antenna. being directional has its atvantages. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr24 02:09 The Leaf-50 mounted high on the window will probably give better peformance (multi-directional) than the Stellare Labs UHF yagi (max 60 degrees) - KA3JAW FNjq- (
