Tom N6BT (n6bt.com) has a line of antennas shaped like flowers, dolphins, cactus, etc. I use his N6BT Bravo 5A antenna which is only 9 feet tall and I have over 20,000 QSO's on it. It is very efficient. I had that in a HOA area.
I'm currently moving to another HOA area with a larger yard. I could not find a nice house that was not in a HOA.
I'll still use the Bravo but will be able to put up a some wire antennas for the lower bands. I am hoping I can put up my satellite antennas.
Got to love the CC&R's here. No antennas, No Transmitters, No Receivers. Should be easy to fight unless they want to get rid of cars, cell phones, microwaves, TV antennas, Satellite antennas, garage door openers, key fobs, etc. I fought many HOA's for folks that had similar language and got reasonable accommodation for antennas added.

Please do not discount those who use VHF. Having an exterior antenna benefits them greatly. I am currently using a copper pipe j-Pole in my upstairs bedroom, and have troubles reaching some repeaters I can hit from my car.
