Rental scams are rampant on Trulia and they are aware of it. First of all, flag the listing and have Trulia take the listing down; and secondly, contact the Santa Clara DA's office. They are also aware of the problem and will prosecute if they can catch the perpitrator.
yes, i do have a wideband discone antenna. one solution that i have is a portable heavy duty tripod on which i mount a telescoping mast.( you can get these at any ACE hardware ). then obviously for wind support i will need guy wires.
the other option i figure, I could go the remote control route on the vehicle. So when parked in my parking spot, I could raise the big antenna there and do UHF remote control. I would suppose that may be one way around the restriction.
I am going to work for Samsung Semiconductors in performance test as a hardware/software specialist.
NOTE: i am considering on joining ARES group; in my job, i design/build PC remote control applications for various electronic devices to program, configure, test (as new products on the production line). I am working on remote control applications for my ICOM radios, and may offer the application as 3rd party product on the market. So i would be able to author a custom radio control tools for the emergency ARES systems.
on the other question, on my budget, i'm making over $30 / hour on my pay, i figure apartment range $1K to $1.5K if possible. i know that is low end. I am leaving Michigan here where rent is less than $600 / month. And, back home for me, in WA state, I was paying about $700/month there over 1 year ago at place that i was at for years -- so my old rate was maintained, grandfathered in.
