Limited Space and Indoor Antennas

Introduction

A "full-size" antenna, such as a half-wave dipole, has a number of advantages, but smaller antennas can work very well, too. If you live in an apartment or condominium, or in certain communities,  you may be restricted to the use of small or hidden radiators.  You may simply not have enough space for an antenna, or you (or your family or your neighbors) may not appreciate the beauty of a large antenna system.  This page offers information on various schemes you can use to build a small-scale antenna.
