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:
While things are not as they should be a great deal of positive progress has been made toward balance between Ham Radio and CC&R's.
According to FCC Regs the developers and eventual homeowners are responsible for the resistance of their built-in stereo systems to legal transmissions, not you.
There is now lots of case law and legislation in favor of Amateur Radio and against those who would write such absurd and legally obscene regs -- especially as such developments are becoming defacto monopolies in many communities.
Check with the folks at the ARRL as they have been gathering information about successful challenges to improperly restrictive CC&Rs.
