Maybe they should consider allowing an MATV system in the buildings. One dish (or set or dishes) and antennas can feed all the units in a building...even in adjacent buildings.
That way, the management has control over where the outside equipment is placed. Of course, they have to provide for whatever channels you want, so it would require (in most cases) OTA, DirecTV and DISH. In some cases, people mght want their own Globecast dish or something similar, but it prevents a lot of hassles in most cases.
I saw an article in a Building Management type magazine a while back....the photo showed ten DISH Network dishes, all facing the same way, lined up down the side of a twelve unit apartment building (same sales guy, same installer). The owner wanted to know how to stop it.
