Hi
I find my shack now on the ground floor of a single story four plex with no tolerance for antennas. We have a few PCs and a couple of nice TVs in the apartment. I operate mainly digital and usually with no more than 25 watts. Are there any precautions I ought to know about to avoid damaging a PC or TV?

25W should do all the digital you could ever want. Do an online search for stealth or restricted antennas. One that comes to mind is an autotuner to the raingutter.

I live in a "condominimum" myself with no antennas allowed and
no place to hide one outside. My antenna is a Buxcomm windom in the attic within a few feet of common building power wiring, cable TV coax and telephone lines. At 25 Watts or less I bother nothing that I've heard about. I'm working the world on CW and
PSK with an FT-817. The 'big rig' is an SG-2020 at about 20 W.
Wouldn't worry about damaging anything with your power level.
