Maybe and no. Depending on where your house is, especially if the proximity of a fire station and/or cellphone tower are close to your home. Those public service providers have special rules for their towers. Thats the maybe part. The no part is that you might spend years in a legal battle squandering your family's fortune trying to prove your case that you have just as much right to have a tower in your HOA controlled subdivision as those public service organizations.

If you do go down that road, make sure you put the antenna up during the wee hours of dark and all in one night. That way at least it is up so you can talk on the airwaves while the legal battle is going on. Just make sure that you are putting up this 100' tower http://texastowers.com/hdxserie.htm that has a concrete slab base of 5'x5'x9'. That'll really piss off your neighbors.
