I understand your comments about the kids.
Our HOA was impossible to deal with and not open to anything while still controlled by the developer. When the homeowners gained control, things got a lot better. The original “design guide” here prohibited antennas, but they are not mentioned in our CCRs except that they can be considered a structure. The city building code regulates antennas but only from a safety perspective.
So, wait it out and hope it gets better or be creative as someone else here suggested.
Maybe an indoor antenna system would work.
