    I live in a 50 year old apartment the thick walls prevent my HT from communicating with the world even after building loop antenna and a 40 m antenna which hangs down the side of building. does anyone have any suggestions how I can overcome the thick wall with a stealth antenna?
    I live on the 2nd floor with no access to the roof or even a porch

    Got a window?
    J-pole or ground plane stuck out the window will work great.
    You can even build a twinlead j-pole and let it hang down the wall.
    They will probably be deaf on the building side, but work good to the open side.
