People will complain about "interference" where none exists, simply because they see an antenna. In their >>>minds, antenna equals interference so any little blip or hiss in their electronics is blamed on the antenna. >>>Especially if they find out that the antenna itself is legal, they feel like the need to find some other reason to >>>bitch and moan about it and "interference" is the easiest option.Not just antennas. Even hams who completely complied with their hoa
restrictions by not having any antennas or radios anywhere at all in
or on their homes or cars at all, no antennas at all, no radios at
all, still got fined by their hoas for causing rfi to the neighbors
simply becaue the neighbors and hoas saw ham license plates on the
hams' cars even though there was no hoa rule forbidding having legally-
registered legal ham license plates on their vbehicles.
Although the hoas then claimed there was by using the "no obnoxious
activities clause" and having a legal ham radio license plate
registered with the state bmv on your legally-registered car was
considered by the hoas as causing obnoxious activities even if you
don't have any radios or antennas at all because as eberyone in all
the hoas knoww, just having a ham radio license plate alone causes
radio frequency interference to all their consumer electronics.
Even after it was proved to the hoas there were no two-way radios at
all and no antennas at all, the fines against the hams stood because
of having a ham radio license plate under the "no obn oxious
activities" clause and to the hoas, having a ham radio license plate
on your car is an onoxious activity since having that type of license
plate on your car causes all sorts of interference 24/7 all day long
and all night long to all the neighbors electronics.
The neighbors in those hoas even complained it caused rfi all day and
night long 24/7.
Also, you don't even need a ham radio license plate for it to happen.
Some hams in certain hoas who did not have any antennas at all in the
hoa, no radios in the hoa at all, and no ham license plates on their
vehicles got complaints from the neighbors and fimes from the hoas due
to there mere presence in the neighborhood even without radios,
antennas, or license plates cause rfi to all the electronics since
they are licensed ham radio operators.
The neighbors knew those hams did not have any radios, antennas, or
license plates against hoa rules, but since they were licensed ham
radio operators, their mere presence in the neighborhood caused
constant rfi 24/7
And they wanted the ham radio operators out of the neighborhood and
living somewhere else since their mere bodily presence in the
neighborhood caused rfi 24/7 to all of the neighbors' tv sets. radios,
computeers. surround systems, lights, toasters, carpets, and toilets.
Yes, some of the neighbors in the hoa said even though the ham did not
have any radios or antennas, that because of the mere presence of the
ham being in the neighborhood, they could constantly hear the hams'
voice coming out of their toilets 24/7 and everyone else he was
talking to (even when the ham was at work over thirty miles away).
Also, the claims that this is a violation of all the neighbors;'
prvacy since the ham's mere presence in the neighborhood
autromatically transmits the voices of whoever he's talking to
(without a radio) into the other neighbors' toilets where those
neighbors can hear the other neighbors,
and also into the other neighbors toasters, computers, surround sound
amps, refrigerators, radios, tv sets, cuckoo clocks, stoves, bathtuns,
sinks, carpets, dining toom tables, wallpaper, paper notebooks,
clothes hanging in the closet, toothpaste bottles and toothbrushes,
The hams' voive and the vboice of everyone he's talking to coming out
of all of those objects because of rfi he's causing 24/7 to all those
All without a radio and eeithout an antenna. Just his mere presence in
the neighborhood automatically does it since he is a federally-
licensed ham radio operator.
