My house in NM had an HOA that expired after 25 years. It expired about the time we bought the place. I was free to put up antennas then. I think that many people here cry that NOTHING is available without an HOA, what they mean is they demand to have a NEW home without one and that is difficult. I have never owned a new home, don't know what that's like but evidently some here think homes wear out like cars and need to be junked after five years. It doesn't work that way. Personally I like having tall mature trees (antenna supports!) in the neighborhood and that is rare in new developments.
