Boy is this ever true. Ask fellow towertalker W5BA in Houston. He has
tried for two years to put up his tower and beams. There are no zonings or
even subdivision restrictions against but the architectural committee has
stopped him as they dont believe a tower fits in or some such nonsense.
A subdivision near me tried to re-instate their CC&R's and were going to ask
all hams to take down their towers....this was stopped by cooler heads
and the CC&R's now leave out coverage for towers, TV, and satellite antennas.
Attorney and famed contester K4BAI say CC&R's run out after 20 years. If
this is true this will open up many subdivisions to us again!
