Thread: 40 meter QRP ant for CW off a balcony??

    Default 40 meter QRP ant for CW off a balcony??

    So I'll be in a condo for a week in on the Gulf coast. The condo where we stay is on the 18th floor - it has a balcony which is about 4 feet wide - my question is what can I do to transmit my QRP from that balcony and try to make some contacts?? I cant have a very large antenna as I have to fit it in a suitcase or a duffle. I was originally thinking a mag loop but still wondering -

    Any ideas guys??

    About 20 metres of thin wire with a small weight on the end. Hang it from the balcony. Even better if you have an ATU with you.
