Re: Unfortunate Circumstances / Station for Sale



Also, there is a Federal law that states they have to make allowances 
for you to receive TV signals. If they do not provide free of charge 
cable or some form of method for you to receive television signals, you 
are are allowed by law to put up an antenna to receive tv signals. This 
will work for vhf/uhf but you won't be able to get away with a TH-7 hf 
beam for example. That method has been used a lot it my area and the 
associations cannot do a thing about it since it is protected by Federal 
law. You may want to consider that direction. If asked to do so, you can 
show that these antennas do indeed pick up TV signals since they are in 
the TV band limits (although narrow). I have even used mine on occasion 
to receive TV signals. Just another thought on this issue.

Best of luck.
