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 http://www.arrl.org/hr-4969

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.
