    FCC has issued a request for comments on EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS BY AMATEURRADIO AND IMPEDIMENTS TO AMATEUR RADIO COMMUNICATIONS.

    Specifically, they are asking about how CC&R's (restrictive covenants) may impede hams from providing emergency communications services.

    This is our best chance to have FCC set rules that will protect hams' rights against unreasonable restrictions imposed by HOA's.

    If only HOA was the restrictive party and not a certain life partner.

    I hope they are going to count more than just ham who have been officially denied requests by their HOA.

    Most hams don't even bother to ask, but are still technically being hampered in their abilities due to the HOA regs.

    I hear ya! When I went "partner shopping", making sure that she clearly understood that this is a significant part of my life and any unreasonable spousal objections would be reason to "just say no" before we got to the altar was a priority for me. She's now W5AMY.

    "they are asking about how CC&R's (restrictive covenants) may impede hams"

    Really? If the FCC doesn't know the answer to this question, then where have they been all this time?

    Perhaps they need another governmental study like the one where researchers wanted to know why hookers have unsafe sex while drunk. Took years to come to a conclusion on that one.

    Your tax dollars at work.

    Of course they know, but they need to show that there is a critical mass of people who are affected and who care about the problem. You see, we live under a system called "democracy", where people's opinion counts. Now, you can put smart comments hear and feel good about yourself, or you can employ this time more productively contributing with valuable input to the FCC inquiry. Most people love to spend hours bitching about things, but never move a finger to change them.
