I believe the larger fear is that a "slippery slope" condition is created. 
First, the ham tower/antenna is erected.  Then, a neighbor seeing the tower 
installation decides to break a covenant by installing a small shed in his 
back yard.  Then, across the street, a boat or large RV find its way to be 
parked at the far end of a driveway .  After that, other covenants are 
broken in succession to the point where they become unenforceable due to 
many legal theories.

So, the one event in and of itself may be harmless, but it can be argued 
that multiple covenant violations will yield impossible enforcement action 
and thus create a condition where lower property values result.
