Dave.  It is not ideal, but I've made it work even on Oscar 6 and 7 from a college dorm (until I snuck the antennas up on the roof...)

There is an entire group of articles by Steve Ford of the ARRL about what I call "low impact" Oscar antennas (including Attic ones).  I've seen him post on this forum and you probably can reach him through ARRL (he has responded to me!).  I bet he can point you in some general directions of things he has tried and the results he has had.

His articles are technically solid, well written, and fun to read...
