The amateur radio cummunity needs your supoort. There is a bill in the House of Representatives that call for the FCC the “reasonable accommodation” three-part test of the PRB-1 federal pre-emption policy to private land-use restrictions regarding antennas. At present PRB-1 only applies to state and municipal land-use ordinances, and the FCC has indicated that it will not act to provide the same legal protections from private land-use agreements — often called covenants, conditions, and restrictions or CC&Rs — without direction from Congress.

The ARRL has set up a webpage on their site for more information on HR 4969 and how to go about notifying your representative that you want their support

The page is located at

Please take the time and send a letter or email to your representative soon before this session of Congress has closed. There is a form letter that you can use to to do this.

If you need any assistance, give a call or email.

Thank you for your time on this important issue.
