Maybe this whole situation will just fade into the night due to lack of interest by the upper management.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

My guess is it will continue to come around again on the gittar every so often.

Less often if LV gets a written "Okie Dokie"; more often if they let it slide for another year or two. :)

Cheers,
Tom

It is time they learned the true power of this station!

Call the home office and tell them the local manager has not heard about the latest decision on dish antennae for the property. Tell them she is worried because you can tell when you call her or see her on the grounds.

I've just figured out their entire strategy at this point. They are hoping that by doing nothing on their part you will let the dogs lie. They know that you are right and if they do anything official, right or wrong, you'll publicize the OTARD to everyone in whole complex... :)

Tom

I agree, the highest probability is that upper management will do nothing. I'm not sure what your best option is. I would be inclined to do nothing unless/until they again come back and tell you to remove the dish. However, I think that is pretty likely (that they will again tell you to remove the dish). So maybe it is best to push for resolution. A polite letter to your complex manager asking for an update might be sufficient for now. She can then pass that on to her superiors.

But if they bring it up again, don't even bother with giving them a copy of OTARD (You have done that and it is probably in your file.) Just go straight to the FCC with a complaint and keep at it until you win and have victory in hand.

Them bringing it up every so often is harassment and interferes with your life.

I've been lurking here and now I can't resist joining in.

But first let me say that I think antennas are ugly on nice structures, that I once hid one in my yard from a HOA, that I have one on my condo and am now on a HOA board that is supposed keep the antennas hidden from public view.

That said, I would write a letter asking for resolution. In that letter I would state that lack of response would be assumed resolution and their acknowledgement that a copy of federals rules has been delivered to them.

I would send it FedEx. Track and print the FedEx delivery on line and print a copy for your records.

One way or the the other, it will provide further entertainment for us lurkers.

How about a push back?

If that dish were to become a new and brighter color the discussion would move from dish-or-no-dish to please-change-it-back.

Letting sleeping dogs lie is a plan but if that little ******* bites you every time he wakes up....your best chance with an ax handel is while he snoozing.

Time to wake the sleeping dogs.

To paraphrase Bluto -- "Over? What do you mean it's over? Nothing is over until we decide it is over. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?"

You need to end this situation through the FCC with their complaint system. If you don't, all current and future residents of your complex who want a DBS will be told (in your words), "we don't allow dishes; we have an exclusive contract for that" and if they ask about your dish, "he is grandfathered in."

So go forth Lord Vader and show them that it isn't over until LV says it is over.

May the Force be with you.
