Another voice of reason.

 

Yes, I live in a HOA-governed subdivision, and I’ll share a secret. The size of 
my lot, the scarcity of volunteer help, and my budget do far more to limit my 
“antenna farm” than any deed restriction. I’ve been to enough HOA meetings to 
know it can take two years to make a homeowner repay the HOA for mowing his 
yard! Your mileage may vary if you live in a plosh neighborhood where the HOA 
has virtually unlimited funds for hiring brigades of attack lawyers. But no, I 
think hams have simply become far too weak-kneed.

 

My HOA has never said a word to me about my antennas.

Actually, I have, and while I have seen a ton of hyperventilating, I would like 
a succinct answer to how or why the proposed bill would make things WORSE? Are 
you getting what you what from your HOA now? Does the bill make that situation 
better or worse?

 

I saw where someone attached a treatise from an “expert” in deed restrictions. 
I read down to where it said that under the bill an HOA “may” determine that a 
440 whip is all a ham would ever need. I stopped reading at that point because 
an argument based on conjecture, which itself seemed to be based on 
anticipating the worst, didn’t seem like much of an argument.

 

I will be the first to admit that I have NOT closely followed all of this. I 
live in a house where I can put up what I want. So I am perfectly happy for 
someone to point out to me that I don’t have a clue what I am talking about. I 
have no shame. That’s why I sent the email to the whole group! You may point 
out in embarrassing detail just how I have gotten it wrong. I just haven’t 
picked up on that by haphazardly reading through these messages, which have a 
very distinct Chicken Little aura about them.

Glad you are happy where you are at, but saying those that want a fair change 
to the law and some relief from HOA nonsense are "running to daddy" is just 
wrong ! Please don't degrade those of us who want fair change to an over 
reaching institution like HOA's. Remember, Hams do provide a public service.

>>"FWIW, I DO consider this issue VITAL to anyone who lives in a restricted
housing development, which includes a very high percentage of US hams.

All of those US hams decided on their own to purchase property in the
restricted area (myself included). I knew what it meant and I'm willing to
'man up' and abide by the agreement I signed at purchase to follow the
rules. Running to 'daddy' after the fact and claiming it is VITAL that I be
allowed to ignore the rules is not an appropriate reaction from my POV. If
it is that vital don't purchase in such an area. Sometimes that can be
difficult, but sometimes life is difficult.
