This is how I understand it as well, however the burden is on the HOA to prove this, which I doubt they have the knowledge, time or money to do.TreeFarm said:Government regulations are written by bureaucrats who don't understand the law and reviewed and approved by lawyers don't understand the subject being regulated, which means a lot of them are flawed. The worst flaw is an ambiguity.
In this case it appears that the HOA could regulate the size of the antenna as long as their limitations don't preclude you from picking up a satisfactory local signal with a proper installation. You have no right under the law to put up an antenna for distant stations.
In other words, as I read it they may be within their rights to tell you to take down the 4228, if you could receive your local stations with a smaller antenna. Others may have a different interpretation.
I would tread gently.
