The same tired old bogus argument.  

Outdoor antennas, particularly wire  strung between trees and vertical masts
in the back yard have absolutely  nothing to do with boats, tractor trailers
or old cars in the front yard or painting the house pink. The killer with
HOAs is the mindlessly inclusive boilerplate regulations inserted by default
in nearly every present-day real estate development contract. 

As Rob just pointed out, a ham who accepts the idea that antennas are an
eyesore, should tear up his ticket and find another hobby.
