Back on the original topic....
The same FCC OTARD (Over the Air Reception Device) rules that allow you to have a dish (up to 40" diameter), also allow for many other types of antennas, including large TV antennas (up to a 12' high mast, IIRC). They also allow satellite radio and internet antennas....but, not antennas for receiving broadcast radio services (
..stupid, ain't it??).
You could put up a VHF TV antenna and probably get away with it. The question might be, "Do people ALL have their satellite dishes down low, on the ground or very low on their walls, or do some have them on their roofs?" Although you can legally put it on the roof that you own, you might have better luck with the HOA if there are other things on the roofs...dishes, antennas of other types, weather vanes, solar collectors, etc.
On another hand, you say you are blind, so you could point out to them that it's not fair that others can have outdoor antennas and dishes for (satellite) TV, but you can't have one for listening to the radio. Also, you could make a point that reading services for the visually-impaired are broadcast on FM radio SCA (subcarriers), but often require a good antenna for reliable reception.
Of course, assuming your attic has clear space (not those awkward pre-fab struts every 16 inches), you could go with a 4 to 6 element FM-only yagi and rotor inside the attic. Or, a couple of FM yagi antennas, pointing in different directions, plus a switch for selecting them, if there isn't sufficient room for the antenna to rotate.
A point I should make here (afterthought)...
The FCC OTARD laws specifically say what the landlord/HOA cannot prohibit. The HOA can definitely allow MORE that the OTARD specifies. They CAN allow you to "go wild", putting in whatever you want, even a tower or a huge monster antenna....even a ("gasp") FM antenna.
The FCC just sets the minimum.
(I miss my ten-element Radio Shack FM yagi and rotor that I had in southern Maryland 35 years ago. On the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, it got hundreds of stations, from all directions.)
