Going to give it all to you up front. My HT is leaving me with wanting more,...so I am considering a mobile 2m Yaesu FT-2900 for mobile use, but I don't want to be limited with VHF only. I want to get on the HF bands with either a Yaesu FT-450 or Yaesu FT-950(both HF+6m rigs),but I have a dilemma with antennas. I can put up an outdoor antenna,but according to the rental agreement,it cannot extend above the ceing/roof line or below ground level. That leaves me with one possible viable option. MFJ's MFJ -1622 apartment antenna that can be used indoors or outdoors. A dipole's out of the question as well as a tall vertical multi-band antenna such as Comet's CHA-250B. Anything outdoors has to be clamped to something,...NOT permantly attached. Can't drill,tap,or saw into anything,either. The MFJ-1622 covers 40m to 2m,but neither the FT-450 or the FT-950 have 2m,...they only go up to 6m! After reading a bit more on this antenna,I would almost have to use it indoors as you have to move a tap on the coil to tune to a different band,...sounds like a real pain in the butt,.. and sounds like it's only drawback. I need an online elmer here as I am not getting any assistance on this matter from anyone in my local club,...very disheartening,but I don't want to leave the hobby already as I am just getting started. Any other ideas besides the MFJ-1622? I really need some help here. I would try echolink,but my computer is not trustworthy enough right now to install any such program. Thanks to anyone who can help me out here! I had better inform you that my apartment complex is on a single level,...no upstairs levels at all!
