    Because you bought one of their cars no, if you are a shareholder, and especially, if they seem to be going in a direction that a lot of their shareholders either don't approve of, or don't understand, then yes.

    Could someone inform a poor man from 'Old Europe'?

    I notice someone posted the HOA could only 'do something' if:

    "an antenna...exceeds the HOA's written guidelines"

    If they are merely guidelines, does that mean they are not definitive and thus not quite as enforceable in the breach as some might think?

    Yes, but the HOA-like phenomenon, which is predicated on one, very narrow view of what a home and its environment should 'look like', tends to become dominant and choice diminishes. That can't be a good thing.

    HOA's can only write "guidelines" from a safety and aesthetics perspective. They can't write specific antenna installation instructions for every antenna made.

    It's not possible to nail Jello to a wall which is what some people would like the HOA wording to do. That explains why they're called "guidelines."

    Maybe it's time to have a complete change of the Board of Directors, as a life member I feel I should be able to get answers from any board member on any subject concerning ARRL activities!!!

    People are banned from installing ham radio antennas in a large majority of HOA's regardless if they signed any contract or not.

    That's the issue identified which this bill is attempting to address and resolve.

    Yup sure do. :)

    Here's what you do...

    Go to any HOA with an antenna ban in force and ask them if you can move and put up an antenna there.

    Come back and post your answer.

    Also be sure and let us know if their refusal to accommodate your request involved signing a contract at the HOA or not.

    Again, people are banned from installing antennas in an HOA regardless if they signed any HOA contract.
