There have been several postings here Re: Neighbors think antennas 

Are ugly. 


Through the years while I was working I heard many comments that people
retire and move to condo’s in Fla. or Arizona and cry that they cannot
operate their Ham Radio. 


I have some observations. 


You could get with other hams so situated and start a club – buy a house
without antenna restrictions and operate as one of the group.  The Findley
Ohio club has a great antenna farm next to I 75 and an oil storage company.


What I did is decide that I did not want to live in a congested area.  I do
not need to play golf every day nor do I need convenient shopping.

We do most all of our shopping on the internet and UPS can now find our
house after we provided them with a map.


Where I am zoning is no problem.  I am zoned rural agricultural.  


I don’t think I will live long enough for the area to get crowded. 


The above does not deal with people moving close by after you have your
tower situated and create a problem.
