    The facts have been public for a couple of years. It's all over the ARRL website for one thing. Haven't you been paying attention?

    And word is that he's heard a lot more than just a "thing or two" from the Community Association constituency from around the country. Is he willing to peeve of the thousands who live in HOAs with the expectation that they won't have to see antennas, versus a handful of hams.

    It's taken the Next Step in The Process.

    And the Bill is GOOD for Ham Radio.

    73 and All the Best!

    And yet K1VR --a prefessional attorney well known to this community-- has shown it is fatally flawed as worded.

    Why are you ignoring this?

    Bill,

    The rational and meaningful objections to the present wording of the bill have been amply aired on QRZed. You seem to be ignoring this.

    Based on consultation with several attorneys, I killed my efforts to build a superstation in rural KY --because this bill , if passed, would create years of legal problems and likely half a million or more in legal bills, with negative resolution.

    Well-known attorney K1VR gave a PUBLIC TALK on the bill at DAYTON HAMVENTION this past May, and cordially but irrevocably pointed out the bill's fatal flaws for ham radio.

    WHY ARE YOU IGNORING THIS?

    It is interesting to see that there is so much critique of a simple bill. This is really no different than the bill that forced HOA's to allow "Dish" and other satellite providers antenna space and installation. The issue, if there is one, is what will happen once the FCC gets its regulatory authority involved. Does anyone have the text of K1VR's talk at Dayton? I would be interested in reading it.

    They may actually have no choice once the FCC rules are approved. They would have to comply. The real fight starts after the bill is passed and the Notices of proposed rule making are set forth. That is where we as Ham's are going to have to present justifications for allowing our antennas and those justifications are wide ranging. That being said, compromises are better than no antennas at all and that is part of the problem. This is going to go on for year or more until the weight of the FCC and government forces HOA's to be reasonable and conform. Just like what happened with satellite antennas. We have a long road ahead even if it passes. Now is the time to write and call. We won't get another chance for a while if it doesn't pass this time. I live near DC and I can tell you, small victories are how things chance. Once it gets to the FCC then the real work begins. But at least we will be on friendly ground. Hope.....is great, action is performance.

    I am confused... does this bill relate to HOA only? What happens if you do not live in HOA?

    It has been said that the HOA lobby has worked on this bill and changes had been made so they now agree to it.

    IF the HOA agrees this bill. THEY have very good reasons to. And it is not in the interest of the HAM operator. Read between the lines, and beware.
