I'm glad to know that...

I can have a satellite as long as I can meet those requirements. When I move to an apartment that might be something I'll have to look into. Thanks for the great podcast!

Satellite TV and Landlords

One thing to mention is that landlords can prohibit you from drilling any holes in the premises. That would mean having to mount the dish on a tripod and then leaving a crack in a door for the cabling to pass through. Also, landlords are under no requirement to sign the permission slip that DirecTV and Dish Network require. So you may have some rights, but unfortunately, landlords still have the final say.

Good points.

They can only prevent you from drilling through exterior walls, which may be all they need to do, I know, but just making it clear.

If the landlord refuses to sign the slip, you have a case to file a grievance with the FCC. Not signing the slip is the same as restricting you.

On the topic of antennas

If anyone has any questions as far as ham radio antennas are concerned, I'm here to offer my help. If you want to put a ham antenna and do not know some of the red tape, please ask me. I have been a ham 13 years and I can tell you some of the laws involved.
