I live in a community with a home owner’s association (HOA) that restricts outside antennas. Can I install an outside antenna to receive TV signals?

In most cases, yes, you can install an outside antenna to receive TV signals.  The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted what is called the Over-the-Air Reception Devices (OTARD) rule, which governs restrictions on the installation of antennas specifically for TV viewing.  The FCC has published a guide which explains the OTARD rules, which can be found at http://www.fcc.gov/guides/over-air-reception-devices-rule.  You should review this document to make sure your installation is allowed under these rules.
