    Make your own flagpole from wood, pipe or PVC.  Get it up nice and high!  Get the wife a fancy new dress.

I have seen where those rain gutter antennas have worked quite well, but unfortunately I don't have any type of gutter system on my house......



Gutters are really cheap to have put up - I bet a single story house would run you $400 - something to consider

BIG LOOPHOLE HERE:
 2. antennas or satellite dishes designed to receive television broadcast signals shall be permitted.

So, Put up a log Periodic for 2m/440, on a rotor, this WILL "receive television broadcast signals" pretty well.

 Feed it with a good quality Coax, routed away from metal objects, and for HF use the Coaxial SHIELD of this run, worked against radials hidden in the lawn.

 Problem Solved.

Put up a fake satellite antenna as far from your apartment as you can.  Then hook a "lead in" wire to it as though it was a real satellite antenna.  Use an SGC autotuner to tune up the "lead in" wires.  If anybody asks, the SGC is the "down converter" for your satellite TV system.  It all sounds pretty good right?

I havent tried these isotron antennas but came across these on another site.  They are small and would probably fit into the restrictions.

Maybe worth trying.
