I first learned about such things in '85 when I was looking for a house. A new Arvida development was being built but to my surprised it was deed restricted on all homes. I figured that if I couldn't put up my antenna it wasn't really my house. Watch out for city and county restrictions as well. If you know about the restrictions and buy anyway, I have no sympathy for self inflicted injuries. Older folks who get into radio well after buying, that's another matter. If you live in an area that may experience emergencies, you might push Emcomm as a reason for an exemption.
