I'm not speaking in terms of antennas. I'm speaking to the whole concept of HOA's. You have to take or reject the entire package. Naturally, I believe modest antennas don't create a problem. All I'm saying is that for most people, the good outweighs the bad. I do believe it's a shame they're necessary, but there are always a couple of jerks that are hell-bent on destroying the property valves of everyone around them. It's a cross section of America. 10% of the people create 90% of the problems.
