Amateur Radio Parity Act

Terry Myers

How many of you have seen this on current antenna bills before Congress?

I have. The author, K1VR, is probably the best, most experienced and
most respected attorney specializing in legal issues associated with
antenna zoning and permitting. As such, he's seen all of the tricks and
"gotchas" that can be thrown at you. KE1B, also an attorney, posted to a
local club reflector strongly endorsing Fred's analysis of the bill.

I attempted to post it to the CQ-Contest reflector and it disappeared
into the great bit bucket.

Note that K1VR goes through this with a fine toothed comb, showing both
its inaccuracies and exposing serious problems with the Bill itself.
Although I have no legal training beyond the English language, I find
K1VR's analysis compelling.

Re: Amateur Radio Parity Act

Elecraft mailing list
Thanks to all having brought this up!!
I already, based the ARRL President's email, sent my endorsement to my Senators. Geez, between working overseas, trying to keep in touch with my state and city issues and elections - I guess I just sent my endorsement out for the bill based only on ARRL recommendation. Mea Culpa!
However, our ARRL has for the most part always done smart things - from my view. It is not easy making everyone happy, all the time. In fact the ARRL is us -- just like government, we elect our reps.
Having said that -- is this a "all or none" game? Could this bill be a footstep into future legislation, e.g. with some/all of the the valid issues that K1VR brings up to be addressed?
Best Regards, ErwinN7EAH

Re: Amateur Radio Parity Act

Bill-3
Excellent read that was written by an expert. A true example of giving
with the big words (chest banging sound bytes etc.) and rhetoric - while
taking away in the fine print. Written by contractual charlatans selling
snake oil.

I can see challenges lingering in the courts until the effected hams die
of old age.

A differing view:
Having benefited greatly by the Telecommunications Act of 1996 in my former
professional life, I doubt that the HOA, POA or COA (X owners associations)
have been asleep at the wheel in dealing with antenna issues since then!

Senator Nelsen's defeat of this bill last year for Florida shows just how
powerful the (?) Owners Associations lobbying can be.
My sense in reading the bill is that it may be the best compromise
available. There had to been much mashing of teeth at ARRL for some of the
wording.

If the bill becomes law then we need to be very pro-active with the FCC
during the comment period. The implementing of the law is up to the FCC and
the "devil is in the details" of that implementing. If you ever read the
FCC's Telecommunications Act primer, the FCC left the Associations very
little wiggle room. I doubt Amateur Radio can ever fare as well.

Hopefully Mr. Imlay at ARRL will keep us informed on that issue & how best
to proceed.

Re: Amateur Radio Parity Act

N5CQ
The HOA lobby is good - they got exactly the wording they wanted in this
bill and they got the ARRL to support it. It is not a compromise - it gives
the HOA complete discretion and control.  

My HOA defined reasonable as follows: "A telescoping mast, 30 feet tall when
extended, painted sky blue, must remain fully retracted from 2 hours before
local sunrise until two hours after local sunset, and additional quiet hours
may be imposed if any neighborhood residents complain of interference." This
was considered a gracious compromise on their part, because "all you really
need to communicate world-wide is a hand held walkie talkie." That kind of
thing will be the best compromise available under this bill.

If this becomes law as written there will be no more details to work,
protests will fall on deaf ears, and the HOA alone will define reasonable.

Apparently you did not read K1VR's analysis. He offered several
suggestions for crafting a Bill without those issues, but noted that,
due to how the legislative process works, it is VERY unlikely that it
could be improved, and that IF the Senate were to pass a bill, it would
be identical to the House Bill, which has the serious flaws noted.

Note that I posted 6 hours before it was closed. And I posted again
before getting to the email that closed it.

FWIW, I DO consider this issue VITAL to anyone who lives in a restricted
housing development, which includes a very high percentage of US hams.
I'm lucky enough not to be restricted in this manner, but I know a lot
of hams who are.

I guess I get to be the guy posting to a closed thread. ouch!

>>"FWIW, I DO consider this issue VITAL to anyone who lives in a restricted housing development, which includes a very high percentage of US hams.

All of those US hams decided on their own to purchase property in the
restricted area (myself included). I knew what it meant and I'm
willing to 'man up' and abide by the agreement I signed at purchase to
follow the rules. Running to 'daddy' after the fact and claiming it is
VITAL that I be allowed to ignore the rules is not an appropriate
reaction from my POV. If it is that vital don't purchase in such an
area. Sometimes that can be difficult, but sometimes life is
difficult.

Re: Amateur Radio Parity Act

KK6ZZP
With due respect for those who disagree, it's not about us. I consider that
the need for a well-crafted Parity Act is NOT ours but a need of our sons
and daughters and THEIR sons and daughters, few of whom are parties to the
contracts to which onerous and often unconstitutionally vague and broad
CC&Rs are attached. If more than 80% of the US population is barred from
using truly effective HF antennas, the future of amateur radio is in doubt.
As a consequence, inadequacies in our national communications
infrastructure could, in the context of a disaster, multiply serious harm
to lives and property. As is often the case in the political realm, we'd do
well to think a great deal less about ourselves and a great deal more about
others.

I really thought this thread was closed.

Nobody outside the USA cares about your internal politicking so please just give it a rest! Let’s get back to Elecraft and leave the American Politics Stuff somewhere else. Please.

Re: Amateur Radio Parity Act

KK6ZZP
I read the list offline, as I suppose many others do. I've carefully
re-read the received messages in the thread, several times, and I find no
message from a moderator, or anyone else, instructing that the thread be
closed. That said, I readily take Andy at his word that such is the case
and I apologize for prolonging the unwelcome thread. Perhaps various email
clients differently classify the messages that constitute a thread. Thus,
what you see as a thread may differ from what I see as a thread. Or perhaps
the moderator's instruction appeared in another thread, one that I have not
read. I admit that I read only a small fraction of the posted messages.
Oddly, I have NO idea why I happened to read this particular thread. It
actually was noise returned in a search on an unrelated topic.

Cheers,

It is something that affects the rest of the world. Other countries have
similar restrictions and may follow america to tighter (or looser) crippling
of amateur radio.

In reply to this post by Andy McMullin
Wow Andy, what a selfish response. Suppose no one in the US cared about
working people in England or couldn't because we could not put up an
antenna. Obviously you wouldn't care but there are a lot of people in
England that belong to clubs in the US and actively participate in events.
I worked a gentleman in England that was county hunting in the US. Because
you are "outside the USA" you must not care if he gets the counties he
needs. It's not about " internal politicking". It's about allowing people
to successfully pursue a hobby. A hobby that you obviously enjoy but since
you have what you want, who cares about the rest of the world. I thought
people in your country were friendly and considerate. I hope you are the
exception and not the rule. By the way, it took you more time to write and
send that response than it would to hit the "Delete" button (which is what
I will do with your posts going forward).
