    It’s true. If you don’t want to live in a neighborhood controlled by an HOA, find another place to live.

    However, I live in a house that my parents bought in 1953. In other words, my neighborhood was extant long before anyone knew how to spell HOA. One day, about 20 years ago, folks in my neighborhood decided to establish a “neighborhood association” (read that HOA). Fortunately, the whole push for the HOA died a quiet death and never became an issue for me. However, my point is that it’s not always a question of not buying a house in an HOA. Sometimes, the HOA moves into your neighborhood in spite of you.

    Anyway, as of January 30, 2024, Senate Bill S. 3690 (the Amateur Radio Emergency Preparedness Act) has been introduced to the Senate and I believe is now in committee. It seeks to amend the Communications Act of 1934 and will protect amateurs from being prevented to place antennas on their property due to HOA restrictions. https://www.congress.gov/bill/118th-congress/senate-bill/3690/text
    This may be a good time to contact your senator and ask their support of this bill.
