So what do you do when you're in an HOA antenna situation, you've got a compromise antenna installed and it does OK (balcony vertical)... you set your expectations pretty low so it pleases you when it works (46 states and 60 POTA parks, a bunch of DXCC countries). Running about 40 watts output on 80, 40, and 20 to avoid interference to other people in the condo. You're running an older radio from the 1980's (Kenwood TS-140S) - works OK for sure. Do you spend the money on a new radio? $1000? $2000? More? The receive capability on these new radios I'm told is amazing compared to a 30+ year old basic radio. I may make some minor antenna improvements, but I'm not going to see an order of magnitude better at this point... the antenna is close to being maxed out on improvements. So that's my question- do you spend several thousand dollars on new gear and accessories for use in a condo with a compromised antenna? Or do you just wait a few years until you move to a better situation? Used is not an option... never liked buying used radios.
