You make it, We break it
Good advice. If you start a shouting match, they'll likely try to come after you about something else, and it will never end. The only possible local restriction you have in that law is a safety issue regarding masts that are more than 12 feet high. Review your options to comply, but remind them that if you have to move it, you may then require a mast up to 12 feet high to maintain your signal, which will defeat the whole purpose of their fruitless exercise
Sharkie_Fan said: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.
