Hi:
I have Super Antenna MP1 and have some questions. I am living with daughter since my wife, a general class, became a SK. My daughter won’t let me put you antenna outside and won’t let me put any cable or grounds outside. The antenna can go in a spare bedroom but there is not 33 feet for the counterpose. I also can’t run a ground from the ft450D and power supply. There are no copper pipes. Any suggestions?
Thanks

How about using an antenna that doesn't use a ground like a dipole. Maybe you can string it up in the attic or the bedroom. You may need a tuner and have to reduce your power but you should be able to make some contacts.

Thanks, but she lives in a doublewide mobile home and there is no attic.
