there was bill in congress to extend PRB1 to CC&R’s and i believe to an extent landlords. it failed. guess the bill had not much support from hams and HOA trade organizations had too much money to throw at political campaigns.
we need the bill reintroduced with some changes made.
maybe put a anti trust type ruling in it.
when a municipal area the HOA is located in requires all new subdivisions have an HOA by law then PRB1 SHOULD apply because then they have become by law in my opinion a defacto government.
also if the area you want to move to doesn’t have an HOA within so many miles of the location that allows antenna’s (IE Competition) then PRB1 should apply.
I hate to tell you HOA board members also read ham forums to see how hams are hiding antenna’s which is why the flag pole ban came about due to hams hiding a long wire in them.
some even go as far as banning all RF emitting devices from your residence and actively enforce these restrictions.
no mobiles with attic antennas, walkie talkies etc.
im not shitting you. i am on an HOA forum and some of them have these rules.
