ARTICLE 5

ANTENNAS/SATELLITE DISHES

5.1

Communication Services.

If an Owner desires to install an antenna for the purpose of receiving television or other communications services, the rules in this Article 5 apply.

5.2

Approved Devices.

An antenna one meter or less in diameter or diagonal measurement that is designed to receive signals from direct broadcast satellites (DBS) or designed to receive video programming services from multi – channel multi – point distribution (wireless cable) providers (MMDS) or an antenna that is designed to receive television broadcast signals (TVBS) may be placed, installed, or kept on a Unit without the approval of the ARC if the antenna complies with the following restrictions:

5.2.1

The antenna must be placed on the Unit in such a manner as to not be Visible From Neighboring Property unless it is impossible to do so without impairing the user‟s ability to receive signals from a provider of DBS, MMDS or TVBS.

5.2.2

If the antenna cannot be placed on the Unit in such a manner as to not be Visible from neighboring Property without impairing the user‟s ability to receive signals from a provider of DBS, MMDS or TVBS, then the antenna must be screened by landscaping or by some other means so that it is not Visible From Neighboring Property, unless such screening would impair the user‟s ability to receive signals from a provider of DBS, MMDS or TVBS, in which event the antenna must be screened by landscaping or by some other means to reduce to the greatest extent possible its Visibility From Neighboring Property without impairing the user’s ability to receive signals from a provider of DBS, MMDS or TVBS.

5.2.3

If the antenna is mounted on a Dwelling or other structure and is Visible From Neighboring Property, the antenna must be painted a color that will blend into the background against which the antenna is mounted, unless the painting of the antenna would impair the user‟s ability to receive signals from a provider of DBS, MMDS or TVBS.

5.2.4

An antenna that is one meter or less in diameter or diagonal measurement and is designed to receive video program services from MMDS or an antenna designed to receive TVBS may be mounted on a mast which does not exceed 12 feet in height above the roof line. However, the mast shall be no higher than the height necessary to establish line of sight contact with the trans

mitter. If the mast or antenna is Visible From Neighboring Property, the mast or antenna must be painted a color that will blend into the background against which the antenna is mounted, so long as the painting of the antenna does not impair the user‟s ability to receive signals from the MMDS or TVBS provider.

5.3

Impairment of Ability to Receive Signals.

A restriction contained in this section shall be deemed to impair the user‟s ability to receive signals from a provider of DBS, MMDS or TVBS if compliance with the restriction would unreasonably delay or prevent installation, maintenance or use of the antenna, unreasonably increase the cost of installation, maintenance or use of the antenna or preclude reception of an acceptable quality signal.

5.4

Restricted Devices.

No antenna which exceeds one meter in diameter or diagonal measurement and no mast which exceeds 12 feet in height above the roof line may be placed, installed, constructed or kept on any Unit without the prior written approval of the ARC.

Antennas used for amateur (“ham”) radio, CB radio, FM or AM radio service, satellite radio or used as part of a hub to relay signals among antennas are not permitted.
