I have had some success in the past with a single band LNR end-fed as well as a 
half-size G5RV with a 4:1 balun in my attic. The LNR 10-20-40 end-fed might be 
a good possibility. I have used one for Field Day and other temporary setups 
with good results. I have also used a single-band Hamstick dipole on a balcony 
while in an apartment. Currently I have a 6 meter Omni-angle and a 2 meter/440 
J-Pole but no indoor wire antennas. Fortunately I can still have a vertical in 
my yard.

Since I recently retired, my wife and often discuss down-sizing but I dread the 
thought of CCR’s and HOA restrictions that forbid antennas. I am encouraged to 
hear you may be able to have an antenna at all. Where is this enlightened
