    I own a townhouse and I have a dish at my place. Another friend owns a condo in a different local town and his board voted no to the directv dish. I thought there was a federal law, but I could be mistaken.

    Does anyone have any information because I am tired of these condominium boards (if its not this problem it is something else).

    The board can not stop him from putting up a dish as long as it is not in a common area...

    We've gone through that also. The other caveats, normally you can't install it in a manner or location that would be a "hazard" to others. Also, if the exterior of the condos is not privately owned by each person, then you probably cannot attach it directly to your unit--or at least it would need to be a non-damaging, non-invasive method of attachment.

    My complex specified it had to be in the back of the unit, on a pole of some sort--but what if you can't "see" the satellite from that location--I guess they would have to allow something different...

    Indeed, they can impose reasonable restrictions but cannot prevent you from receiving the signal. Follow the link someone posted above - it provides a lot of plain-English info on your rights.
