Author Topic: Antenna restriction in Chesnut Ridge, NY?  (Read 653 times)

I would like to install my vertical antenna, which is length 18ft, over my house's roof in Chestnut Ridge, NY, but I do not really know if I could.  I think that the antenna is not that high and big, but it is better to ask someone who know for sure.  Someone who is reading my message might have read my previous posted message about club in Chestnut Ridge, NY area.  I am a foreign ham from Thailand, who would like to operate in America.

Karn:

In the US, there two general ways you can be "antenna restricted".

The first, is when the local government (Chestnut Ridge) has some regulation applying to antennas. If all you are erecting is an 18 foor vertical, it unlikely (but not impossible) that the town has some regulation.

The second possibillity is that there are some Deed restrictions or that a Home Owner's Association (HOA) has some rule prohibiting exterior antennas.  Given the small size of what you seek to erect, IF there is a HOA, it could potentially be your biggest problem.  Do you (or the owner) pay dues to a HOA?  If you are not the owner, ask a neighbor if there is a HOA. If so, get a copy of the rules and bylaws and read them. If there is no HOA, then you are likely free to erect an antenna.
