>>Bill, You hit right on....Most states don't let you change a contract after

>>you did not sign for...Plus I for one would never sign any CC&R.
>>BTW: many subdivisions have such regulations that are supposed to be part

>>restrictions. One guy I know read all his contract material and there were
>>no such statements. When he applied properly for his 80 foot tower the
>>subdivision garden club said the restrictions would not allow a tower. In
>>his explaination of the service side of amateur radio he explained why he
>>need a tower, why this would cut RFI, and moreover where were the

>>and the county approving the tower he had many of the boys over for scout
>>jamboree on the air. These same people now are positive on amateur radio.
>>Word to the wise take positive steps not legal steps first!
