electronic signals of any kind. No electronic antenna or device of any type,

Sounds to me like the above section prohibits cordless phones and certainly
cell phones anywhere in the subdivision. My approach would be to suggest
that the new rules are way too restrictive, but do not give the cordless
phone or cell phone examples. If the other side wins and the rules go into
effect, you will have a way to make life miserable for them as you constanly
file complaints against cell phones and cordless phones. I think cordless
garage door openers and certain burgular alarm systems would be prohibited
as well. Probably most remote contol units too. No kid may play with a toy
radio controlled car, etc. etc. They're nuts. I'd let them put their foot
deeply into their mouth and then expose their ignorance.
