Agreed Jay; And the NIMBYs, RF causes cancer whackos and others who
have made it almost impossible for any new broadcast plant to get
built could be on the way to getting municipalities to become just as
intolerant of antennas or more so.

It's important to remember that PRB-1 is a "reasonable accomodation"
and HOAs still get to say what that is.  They are the ones freaking
out now and claiming some ham will put up a 200 foot tower in the
middle of their charmed (and oddly uniform looking) development.
That's not what this is about; it's about letting a ham have some
minimal antenna, maybe a Ringo for 2 meter operation so they can do
some SkyWarn activity.  Any ham who wants to pursue the hobby in any
kind of traditional way, meaning  average HF antennas, would still
have to find a non-HOA dwelling place.
