Many of the lots that have CC&Rs probiting antennas are far from small. And
the real problems are not even that they permit towers; most CC&Rs even
prohibit the wire in the trees.

Now, it is argued by some that people have a choice about where to live and
in accepting the CC&Rs. In some areas of the country, the Northeast being
an example, hams do indeed have a choice. But in many areas, all recent
development that is any reasonable drive to and fro work has CC&Rs. Is it
really a "choice" to have to live in an older home, with all of its
associated maintenance problems, or have to live a 2-hour drive from work?

Hi All,

Just a little observation......

When I had that Force 12 on the 85' tower, if I called the Fox more than 3
or 4 times using 250 mW and didn't get him, I would go look to see if the
antenna was still there.

Now, running the full 5w into the High Sierra Screwdriver mounted on the RV,
if I even get the Fox I do the happy dance! Wheeeeee.....I got another Fox
tonight.!!!!

And the real thing that is wrong with CC&R's is that they
limit/restrict/prohibit anything! What ever happened to owning your own
property or freedom?? Now if your lot is so small that your tower can fall
on your neighbors house/yard, then they have a right to stop you. :-)

See how easy life is when you don't let the facts get in your way?

OK, back in my hole.....
