Antenna Placement Antenna Placement
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) "prohibits restrictions that impair the installation, maintenance or use of antennas used to receive video programming. The rule applies to video antennas including direct-to-home satellite dishes that are less than one meter (39") in diameter, TV antennas, and wireless cable antennas. The rule prohibits most restrictions that:

  (1) unreasonably delay or prevent installation, maintenance or use;
  (2) unreasonably increase the cost of installation, maintenance or use; or
  (3) preclude reception of an acceptable quality signal."

The rule also "applies to customer-end antennas that receive and transmit fixed wireless signals." This "includes wireless signals used to provide telephone service or high-speed Internet access to a fixed location." "Local regulations that require a person to obtain a permit or approval prior to installation create unreasonable delay and are generally prohibited." "The rule applies to state or local laws or regulations, including zoning, land-use or building regulations, private covenants, homeowners' association rules, condominium association restrictions, lease restrictions, or similar."
