    I'm a patient man, even though you're not too cerebral. Chip
    I am willing to wait a year on the counter offer.

    And when the Parity Act passes as it surely will, you won't be out.

    If I am not cerebral, then we are all in trouble.

    The only thing Silly here is you're Stuffed up sense of Self Importance, and your Obvious Wrong stance in opposition of the Amateur Radio Parity Act, base on no valid premise. None whatsoever, Sir. Red Font, Bold Font, pictures of irrelevelency, these just don't make it.

    Thanks;

    That explains the ARRL strategy.

    Time to go into overdrive to kill the bill (as worded).

    "I'm still waiting for someone to indicate an actual public need for more hams using outdoor antennas at their locations."

    Keep waiting, but don't hold your breath. We don't need one.

    By Coincidence..I'm still waiting for someone to indicate an actual public need for HOA's and CC&R's to regulate hams....

    Unfortunately the time when one could make a choice to buy across the street where there was NO HOA has come and gone. As in my city, Wentzville, MO, the city has mandated that all new subdivisions must have an HOA and restrictive covenants to be passed by the city's zoning and building department! It will only get more intrusive as time passes unless we make a stand now against this.

    What is interesting is that this particular problem can be fixed at the local level. You can get your city council to reverse this, or at least make an exception for ham radio.

    You can get your state to pass an exception for ham radio in CC&R. Since private property contract law is regulated by the states, its a way better solution than a federal communication regulation that seeks to preempt private contract law.

    I don't understand why so many people with CC&R "problems" are just sitting around waiting for ARRL to "do something." If the problem is in your city council, go to the council and get them to fix it. If the problem isn't the city council, go get your state legislature to go fix it. It will give all the idle, rotting ham radio clubs in the state something interesting and useful to unite and work on together.

    This is true for me as well. I would love nothing more to live away from the city and not have to deal with an HOA. I did not become interested in ham radio until I moved into this house. Some on this forum don't think understand that. I have been able to "get away" with installing an R8 antenna with no backlash. My wife for a few years is waiting on a letter from the HOA. So far I've proved her wrong, but I don't think I could get that lucky with a tower.

    We do understand that. We just think the answer is a real bill that gives you some measurable minimum rights to put up an antenna, and which doesn't take away the antenna rights of HOA hams who currently have no antenna restrictions. Neither of those are part of the current ARPA bill.

    I hope ARRL wakes up and replaces their useless bill with a new bill that actually helps you with your situation.
