The Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2015 (H.R.1301) & (S 1685)
Attention all amateurs, the Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2015 ( H.R. 1301) has been introduced in the US House of Representatives. Now a Senate Bill has been introduced (S 1685). Both bills pertain to amateurs obtaining permission to erect antennas where an HOA, or other covenant prohibits an antenna outside. If passed the FCC would amend part 97 rules to include homeowners’ association regulations and deed restrictions, often referred to as “covenants, conditions, and restrictions” (CC&Rs). Even if you do not currently live in such an environment, you may encounter this issue some day. Support for this bill will assist your fellow amateurs who may live with such constraints.
To read all the details and how you can assist in this very important issue to all amateurs, go to the updated web site: http://www.arrl.org/amateur-radio-parity-act
