Not according to the FCC OTARD FAQ
( http://www.fcc.gov/mb/facts/otard.html ):

Q: Whose antenna restrictions are prohibited?

A: The rule applies to restrictions imposed by local governments,
including zoning, land-use or building regulations; by homeowner,
townhome, condominium or cooperative association rules, including deed
restrictions, covenants, by-laws and similar restrictions; and by
manufactured housing (mobile home) park owners and landlords, including
lease restrictions. The rule only applies to restrictions on property
where the viewer has an ownership or leasehold interest and exclusive
use or control.


Of course, it looks like OTARD only gives you another 2 feet (12 feet
above the roofline, maximum, with a 1 meter diameter or diagonal
