Isn't it ironic that Larry, KE0KZ had an antenna in his HOA community and it's the city that intervened in his operation? I presume that his HOA either didn't have a prohibition against antennas or that he received an accommodation from the HOA board. Then, an alderwoman, who happens to be the president of his HOA argues in favor of the city regulation that effectively bans Amateur Radio without paying a $150.00 fee for a special use permit and submitting expensive engineering studies for even the most minimal of an installation. So, if you can't ban the antennas and Amateur Radio operators through the HOA, I guess the next step is to get a city ordinance passed to do the job for you. There goes the argument about government getting involved in private CC&R contracts. How hypocritical of anyone that would think the city ordinance to regulate not only Amateur Radio antennas, but equipment and its' operation is ok and then object to the federal government intervention to prevent that from happening because it tramples on private contracts. I also wonder if the authors and promoters of the original enactment of that city ordinance provided a "currently-valid reason(s)" for now or in the future for "stepping on legal private contracts"? Watch out for a similar ordinance coming to a city near you!
