That's BS. The one meter rule only applies to satellite dishes, not OTA antennas. See http://www.fcc.gov/mb/facts/otard.html You can put up any OTA antenna you want to.shortstop11_jeff said:My HOA is trying to get me to remove my OTA antenna 4228 CM because a neighbor does not like the look of it. Well of course I do know of the FCC law saying I can have one- but it appears my 4228 is 39 1/2" in width, but the FCC says you have to have an antenna smaller than 39 3/7" (1 meter) in diameter- so it appears that I may not be in correspondence by a couple fractions of an inch.
Has anyone out there won against their HOA with this antenna- if you have, what course did you take to win?
I also have a smaller 4 bay - the CM 3021 that I COULD replace it with, but would rather keep the big one for more channel coverage/better reception and to piss off the neighbor who complained.
Your help would be appreciated- thanks
