    The hams have a long way to go before they reach the level of lies and deceit that CAI has resorted to in their letter of opposition (and so called study by their ham / attorney) of these bills to congress.

    And, of course, that legitimizes passage of HR1301/S1685. Not.
    While at least some of what has come from CAI (et al) is at least a stretch, it in no way makes ARRL's argument valid.

    Yes, they have.

    A succinct response yet, without anything to back it up. Again.

    I think they have also.

    A compelling argument is this bill can only possibly impact 2/10ths of one percent of all residents, statistically; in reality, less than that since obviously not all hams live in HOAs. If hams represent the average, then currently about 21 percent of all hams would live in HOAs.

    This takes the 2/10ths of one percent down to less than 5/100ths of one percent. So, in effect, if you live in an HOA with 1000 members, the probability of a ham living there is almost zero.

    Because it's such a small number, the 'national impact' of this bill is miniscule and almost nobody would be impacted.

    For those who might be, they should wait to see what happens before they protest, and the 'reasonable accommodation' clause would give them opportunity to protest just fine.

    It's funny...HOAs cannot prohibit murderers, rapists, child molesters and other convicted but released criminals from living within their developments. But they sure don't want any hams there. I find it nearly hilarious.

    It's called Integrity, it discredits their arguments and casts a pall over the proceedings.

    The above is not a reason to pass this legislation. It will help a tiny few, while trampling on the contracts/agreements/whatever of MILLIONS of neighbors.
    Point missed. CAI's argument against HR1301/S1685 MAY be without merit (in whole or in part) but, that does not necessarily validate ARRL's argument in favor of it.

    In any court in the land, a case without merit is tossed. PERIOD.
    ARRL has better merit.

    Not so much. At least, if they have merit, they haven't shown it.

    ARRL has make better sense, then each to his own opinion.
