RADIO LAW: HAM GATHERING SIGNATURES ON PETITION TO VOID ANTENNA PROHIBITIONS

N4UM tells Newsline that he has begun a petition drive to the FCC. This, in an attempt to get the regulatory agency to void antenna prohibitions by developers and Home Owners Associations.

As of this report the petition has garnered over 700 signatures. N4UM says that he is doing this now because the FCC is currently requesting formal comments on emergency communications in amateur radio. The agency also wants to know the effects of impediments to the amateur radio service as part of the Docket GN 12-91 inquiry.

Comments on this federal study close on May 17th. N4UM says that his petition will also close on this same day. You can find his petition on-line at tinyurl.com/antenna-rights (N4UM)


I don't know how much good this will do, but I can't see how it could hurt any pending efforts. At minimum it will bring some more attention to the subject by all concerned.
