There has been a lot posted about antenna restrictions. Here in the Kansas 
city area it's no different. Wanting to buy a new home, I have been to many, 
many new housing additions. I recently found an addition that had a few 
larger lots left. I currently use a TX-455 and X9 with slopers. I will have 
to give this up when I move next summer. As the builders are now offering 
cheap stereo systems with in-ceiling speakers, I will probably have to 
mothball the Alpha as well. I recently bought a Big SteppIR vertical that I 
hope I can somehow put up when I move. I selected the largest lot, which 
adjoins a horse ranch. The CC&R's in my subdivision say something like this:

                           SECTION 13

No outside television or radio antenna, or satellite dish or receiver, shall 
be erected, installed or maintained on any Lot, or on any structure on the 
Lot, except that one satellite dish or receiver not exceeding two (2) feet 
in diameter shall be permitted on the side, roof, or chimney of a dwelling 

                           SECTION 15

No outbuildings, storage sheds, storage tanks, or any other free-standing 
structure detached from the residence shall be constructed or maintained on 
any Lot.

So, I guess If you want full blown ham radio, you need to live on a large 
acreage, away from other people. ($$$). Or, live in a shack next to a crack 
house where nobody cares. I doubt if anyone ever cracks the CC&R's on behalf 
of ham radio. I have to admit, I have seen some really trashy looking 
antenna setups. Most non-hams see all of them as trashy looking and a blight 
on the neighborhood, not to even mention the RFI. If I can use the vertical, 
I think it will satisfy my current needs.

HNY to all,
