    "Watching this very closely", but not doing a damn thing about it. To hell with the ARRL - just another corporate money machine. What have they actually done for YOU, the dues paying member, lately?

    I'd rather watch my cash swirl the drain.

    One has to ask how this even came up... Were there a number of deaths because of hams having a qso? Nope this is bull shit beurocrat nanny state intrusion into our lives. Ham empowers individuals to be independent and self-reliant a danger to collectivism...How about banning Obama phones in moving vehicles that makes more sense.

    If it were not for the ARRL you would not even have a license.

    Consider,In the blink of an eye any motion on a mobile device faster than a walk could shut the device down until a state of equilibrium was achieved.they have chosen to place the burden on the operator,and the liability on to everyone else.Examples exist in both the public and private sectors as to the relative inability for humans to walk and chew gum at the same time.So keep your eyes on the road and both hands on the wheel.There really is no reason for any service be it amateur or commercial,even moving maps are an example of poor prior planning Convenience at the cost to safety but not to commercial profit is not a good excuse

    We have a significant initiative in process to get this re-written. It probably will not be effective until later this year.

    Similarly various law enforcement and legislative opinions are in-process - but beware, opinions a) do not change the law itself, b) will probably not get to or be heeded by all law enforcement or courts.

    Tickets are all about REVENUE GENERATION!!! The more tickets the CHP writes, the more cash MOONBEAM has to squander!!! And Squander HE DOES!!! Now the current WHINEY THINGY is the outrageous Pensions they are required to pay out. Millions and BILLIONS!!! They gotta come up with it somewhere. So Police are obliged to pull over motorists even if they think their Tires are too dirty! ANY WAY they can to raise cash to be squandered!!

    I sincerely doubt that, but I digress from the topic at hand.
