I quote: For the OTARD rules to apply, the antenna must be installed "on property within the exclusive use or control of an antenna user where the user has a direct or indirect ownership or leasehold interest in the property" upon which the antenna is located. An orgaization contractig for the short-term use of a meeting facility has _no_ such 'ownership or leashold' interest in the property.
