I believe Gary is referring to the FCC's OTARD (Over-the-Air
Reception Devices) Rule, 47 C.F.R. Section 1.4000, which (with some
exceptions) preempts local restrictions that impair the installation,
maintenance, or use of antennas used to receive video programming or
certain point-to-point wireless signals (e.g., wireless "last mile"
Internet service). However, it does not preempt local restrictions
on antennas used for GPS, AM or FM broadcast reception, SWL,
satellite radio, etc., etc.
