You have a couple of things to consider. What is the HOA asking you to do? Take down the antenna entirely? Move it to a different location? HOAs or local governments can restrict placement of an antenna SO LONG AS IT DOES NOT AFFECT YOUR ABILITY TO RECEIVE A SIGNAL. IF the HOA is asking you to move it from the side of the house to the back of the house and you can still receive a signal in the back of the house, that is permissable. If on the other hand, the rear of the house installation would inhibit your line of sight and thereby degrade your signal, it is not permissable.

If I was in your shoes, I'd start by calling the HOA and try to climb the ladder and resolve it amicably. If they don't go for that, fax over the link Texasbrit provided, and highlight the appropriate areas, along with a cover letter explaining your position and the fact that you are within your rights according the the FCC. Nothing nasty, just outline your rights, just in case there's someone there who doesn't know the rules and is making the decisions.
Have you considered an attic installation?

Many people on this board have had GREAT success and in some cases improved performance. Legislation exists that supports what you are trying to accomplish but at the same time you want to keep the angry ladies on the HOA happy. :)

How far are you from your local affiliate(s) broadcast towers?
