Great to hear about your 'by any means' mindset to get on the airwaves.
I love hearing about balcony antenna setups and people operating from apartment buildings, it shows that there are no limits on what you can achieve. Such setups are used successfully around the world and can work well especially when propagation conditions allow.
I hope a Charlie Tango callsign inspires or helps you to pursue it all further.
All the best, Victor
