I would say if your a ham looking to purchase property and thinking of putting 
up some kind of size able antenna then stay away from HOA'S,CC&RS,DEED 
RESTRICTIONS,P&Z CODES and anything else that even smells like a problem. It's 
hard enough getting thru the permitting process. You don't need anymore serious 
problems. An HOA can be a real nightmare and make getting a building permit 
easy. Sadly there are not many properties without some kind of restrictions. I 
would stop in and meet with the Building official and get his opinion (in 
writing,good luck with that). Stop P&Z while your there and pay them a 
visit.Bottom line as they say in real estate is LOCATION< LOCATION, LOCATION. 
Taking to the neighbors is not a bad idea either.I would say 90% of the time 
permits can be obtained. You just have to know how to do it, and every town and 
city does it different. Just mt HMO.

The problem you will have is not necessary the writing but the CC&R board. They 
may simple 

come and tell you to take the tower down for whatever reason. I would, myself 
stay away from anything that even smell CC&R. I have a pain in ... just now as 
it is with my little "one-horse-town" with being able to erect a tower.

Subject: [TowerTalk] CC&R's

I am considering buying a piece of property which would be perfect for my 72

ft. tower and

a couple antennas.  However when the realtor pulled out the CC&R's, the

following line

was found :  "large satellite dishes and roof-mounted television antennas

are not allowed".

It does not specifically preclude a ham tower and antennas but I'm worried

that someone

could cause a problem based on the "spirit" of the line.  There is no HOA.

This was put

in by the original developer based on the city guidelines.  

I'm hoping someone on the list can tell me if I could have a problem or if I

need some lawyerly advice?

Thanks, 73
