    He is the ARRL Vice Director for your division (West Gulf) , and he's the one you should contact . His information is on QRZ , ARRL .org . If something needs to be changed in the Texas Legislature , he's the one who knows how to do it and who's ear to bend , since he did it the last time (he go it reworded to give us an exemption) .

    If your going to live inside the borders of Texas and operate an Amateur Radio , and your really concerned about this, you should make it your business to know who he is.

    Or maybe it was crossed out because the proposed bill already references a definition that already exempts licensed amateur radio operators. This bill is not yet up for vote and will continue to be edited.

    He came up with that because it is stated in the application for the plates that you must have a amateur radio in the vehicle, I live in Texas and I have had Radio operator plates in the past. He is correct.

    All y'all really need to do is understand that amateur radio is not governed by part 47. The proposed law spells out devices under part 47cfr are involved. That being said , those of us who like living in Texas , still free for the most part , should contact their representatives just so they know we ARE watching. And those who don't live here ,find your own fight to enter the canine of your choice. Please ----calm down ---- read , understand , and think before jumping to reactionary conclusions.

    It's in the Motor Vehicle code for Texas.
