Well, I think pretty much everything has been discussed on this topic...point/counterpoint, serious remarks, silly remarks, remarks that have nothing to do with the original post, etc.

Let's see what happens to this ARRL proposal this time around. I'm out!  Smiley

73 all, fun discussion,     Bob  K7JQ

Perhaps, instead of choosing to live in a particular area where the mantra of "government is bad" prevails, and HOA's abound; you should choose to live in an area where that is not the case. "

Sometime having to earn a living and support a family along with ones job training have a large bearing on just where one can choose to live. If you are independently wealthy, choices are no problem. If on the other hand you have to work consistantly to proviede for you and your family then choice of where to live is somewhat constrained.

Let's see. My choices are live in an area where I can reasonably expect to find work or go on assistance. Live close enough to my work that my daily fuel consumption doesn't consume a significant portion of my income, or be in circumstances similar to not working with none of the benefits. Live in an area where the distance, roads, and traffic allow a reasonable commute time, or don't have time left for anything but work and commute with just a little time left over to eat, sleep, and so on. Once all these choices have been made, I may or may not have the luxury of choosing whether or not to live in an antenna restricted zone.

Reasonable accomodation is not possible in the present social and govermental contexts as it is nearly impossible to find "reasonable" people. "Being reasonable" like "compromise" is now code speak for do it my way or else. Look at our leadership examples.

So I fear that even if Resonable Accomodation is mandated, there will be a bumpy road on the way to reason.


Sounds like you need to move to a new region, where HOA's are not common.  I can suggest a list of properties for you, if you like.  Even a real estate agent who can find such a property for you.

Reasonable travel time is simply your opinion. I have relatives in South Dakota that have great jobs, and yet think nothing of driving 100 miles to go out for supper. And their commute is about 50 miles to work. They don't complain at all. I have another relative that thinks 5 mile commutes are too much. So it is simply opinion.

Or the third option. I am able to do most of my work remotely. The few times I need to go into the factory is a 60 mile commute. Which is once or twice a month.

And as I have said many times, I did the legwork to put this all together. Besides being able to put up great antennas, I have much less noise that big cities have (audio and RF). My kids can play in the yard. Etc.
