HOA, POA what ever you call it is of no importance. There is a group that regulates what you can and cannot do with your property based on deed restrictions. Under Federal Regulation you can install a TV Antenna to receive OTA transmissions even if your deed restricted community says otherwise. Now the articles that deal with this suggest that you follow what rules that are in place for your community where you live before trying to install an OTA Antenna. HOA is a generic term used to describe these types of organizations. Where I live is not the subject of this discussion.

Then you can also choose to go about it the bone headed way also if you like conflict in your life. Just go ahead and put an antenna up and get the neighbors angry, never get invited to another party, and be isolated in your neighborhood. Some people believe these deed restrictions are just mere suggestions.
sorry i like to argue and furthermore i don't like folks with no authority to try to tell me what i can and can't do.
Our government does enough of that.
remember we live in a free world and i resent someone telling me what i can and can't do with my property as long as i am within the LAW!

Well I'm kind of like you. I'm not big on regulations either. But the fact of the matter is if it were not for big lobby money that went to Washington concerning the small satellite industry the HOA, POA, or what ever you call them would have the right to say yes or no on the outdoor TV antenna based on what is in the covenants of the community. What many people don't realize is when you buy into one of these communities you actually enter into a binding contact. You actually give away some of your rights concerning your own property for a contractual agreement where the ruling group of people will maintain the esthetic quality of the neighborhood so as to protect everyone's investment. In 99% of the cases those people are reasonable. Then there is that 1% that can be a major nightmare to the home owner. Luckily in this area whether it be the Villages, Stonecrest, or DellWeb things are reasonablely managed.

Yes, the last time I ran a channel scan on my TV it found 50 channels. There are only a handful that are of interest to me; ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, METV, GRIT, and a few others. There are many religious and Spanish channels.

GracieGirl-I am truly sorry you are having a difficult time understanding my post. Had you read my post, I clearly state"I would not put an antenna outside my house" No,I am am not having a baby,which I suppose this is your attempt at having something humorous to say. There is this thing on the internet called "GOOGLE" put in CORD CUTTING and you will find out the definitions. Since my article pertained to TV antennas, you just might see the similarities. Maybe not. Again, I have no idea what makes you think I am unhappy maybe you could point out specifically where you thought you saw it.
Have a most wonderful day,
Russ

And of course the deed restrictions are the law, and if you live here you signed them and accepted them. If you don't live here then you are excused for not knowing what is within the law here.

Seems like the bottom line is this like it or not if some one wants an outdoor TV antenna they can have it installed HOA or not.

OMG the deed restriction is not Law!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also they are preempted by federal and State Law!
a association can not make law only legislation can.

Alright then, they are part of the contractual agreement that you signed recognized by law. How's that?

AND if you want to have an outside antennae you can according to federal law...AND "cutting the cord" apparently means no longer buying service from an internet or cable provider...right, OP? Still don't know why OP didn't say that and can't figure out the purpose of the original post...Why present all that stuff from the POA?
