Roof Vent Antenna

For those radio operators who are living in an HOA community and have to adhere to strict 'no antenna' policies there are options and the Roof Vent Antenna is a good option. It is basically creating a fake roof vent with a Slim Jim VHF/UHF antenna hiding nicely inside. Here are a few photos of a local installation with an AREDN antenna and dipole attached as well.  More photos to come and hopefully a video description as well. Installation requires a few basic supplies and a vent tube hole cut in the roof  to slide the pipe through, attaching it to the attic truss then installing a vent flashing with roofing sealant to keep the rain out and spray painting the pipe to match existing vents.
