- Is it right for us hams to hide our antennas?
- And should we tell our neighbors that we are a ham?
Yes it is.
No, it's usually a bad idea.
This was prompted by this question.
Lots of law-abiding hams need to hide their antennas. HOA rules, objections from spouse and neighbors. Ask most any city ham: they will tell you that the mere presence of their antenna even if not connected is the "cause" of their neighbor's problems with their TV, radio, garbage disposal, sickness ... the list is infinite.
