New Proposed Texas Legislation

David Bowles
 

There is new legislation being proposed and considered that exempts certain radio antennae, flagpoles and solar panels from CC&Rs. I believe that passage of this bill would be beneficial to hams that are currently prevented from installing antennae on their property due to covenants and other restrictions.

Links to the history and text of the bills can be found here:

The following is an email that was sent recently (Friday) by Dr. David Woolweaver, Director ARRL West Gulf Region:

WEST GULF DIVISION LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

CC&R RELIEF BILLS

The West Gulf Legislative agenda is at a critical stage as we attempt
to obtain passage of Senate Bill 1552 and House Bill 4637, but there
may be good news soon! We should have a good idea of our status by
Monday, April 20th, 2009.

There is a new website for the West Gulf 's legislative efforts, which
will become active with the first update on Saturday or Sunday.

http://www.westgulflegislation.org.

PLEASE CHECK OUT THE NEW WEBSITE ON SUNDAY.

An update will be posted on the new web site over the weekend and
future updates will be posted there until the end of the 2009
legislative session. On Sunday, look for a request for membership
action.

Depending on what occurs on Friday and Saturday, each of you may need
to take action, but until you see a request on the new website or
receive another email from us, no action is necessary at this time.

Everyone did a superb job when we asked for help with the cell phone
bills, and we may need another heavy response, but we will not know
until Saturday or as late as Monday, April 20, 2009.

If action is needed, a notice with full details will be posted at
www.westgulflegisla tion.org. A West Gulf BLAST BULLETIN will also be
sent.

Thank you for your continued support.

When Vandals Strike Infrastructure, Hams Provide Communications

The ARRL Letter, Vol 28, No 15 (Friday, April 17, 2009)
When Vandals Strike Infrastructure, Hams Provide Communications
http://www.arrl.org/news/stories/2009/04/15/10771/?nc=1


The friend who sent me this item posed the question,
"I wonder if this was a feeler by the 'religion" of "peace' "?


Off Topic - Free Classified Ads for Hams

Lee Besing
 

This is a one time announcement, that I felt might be of general
interest to the hams who subscribe to this list. I won't be
repeating it, and any responses should be sent direct to me, either
at "info@sanantoniohams.org" or "lee@besing.com". Just wanted to let
you know I've added two new features to my web site
www.sanantoniohams.org and started an electronic newsletter for hams.

Feel free to hit "delete" if you are not interested further, you
won't hurt my feelings.... 73 de Lee N5NTG

The News Blog Area
Most of you already know about the Blog are of the website. We're
allowing other hams to be able to post new club news or topics direct
to the site now. Anyone can register (free) to post comments to
existing topics, but if you want to be able to post your own club
news, etc., contact me direct and we'll make it happen. We recently
enabled ARRL's Texas Legislative Action folks up in Austin (KE5ISX)
access to begin posting news about proposed bills before the Texas
House or Senate that we (the hams) need to either support or
oppose. Look for those postings to begin soon. www.sanantoniohams.org/blog

Monthly Email Newsletter - Ham Radio Info Only
I've also created a Ham Radio email list for a monthly
newsletter. Currently I have about 300+ hams, mostly from the San
Antonio area, with a few from outside that area. I know this list
covers a wide part of Texas, and some of you aren't in SA. But if
you want to get my monthly newsletter from San Antonio Hams, contact
me off this list to be added. Most of the issues will be local to
the SA area, but some will pull from the Blog where legislative or
other issues affect us all.

The Classified Ad Area
Now you can post free classified ads for any ham radio or computer
related items, free of charge, for up to 30 days. You can post up to
750 words of text, and up to 4 photos / images if you desire to show
what it is that you want to pawn off on some other unsuspecting ham,
oops, I meant to say tearfully separate yourself from that valuable
item. And you don't need to be in San Antonio to use this free service.

One person's junk, is another person's treasure, thus the reason we
have Ham Radio Swapfests year around. But what happens between those
events? Got some extra / unused Ham Radio gear you want to sell or
trade? Looking to buy some used gear? Post a new Classified, or
Browse our Classifieds posted by other hams.

SanAntonioHams.org reserves the right to decline service to anyone
for any reason. This is a free site, sponsored by N5NTG, not
affiliated with any individual ham radio club or organization. We are
not responsible for what you buy, so the old saying "Buyer Beware"
applies. Let us know, however, if you feel you got ripped off, or if
someone is falsely advertising something for sale or trade using this
free service.

At this time, all classified ads are free. We reserve the right to
change this policy in the future, but don't expect to. This site is
focused on Amateur Radio / Ham Radio items and topics, but for now,
we'll leave such restrictions open until we see if it gets abused. No
postings offering anything illegal, sexual, or dealing with alcohol
or tobacco will be permitted. We're really not wanting to become the
next job search site, or Apartment / House hunting site, but we won't
turn those down until we figure out what direction our visitors want
to move toward.

This Classified Ad section is under development and thus perhaps
subject to change as we add / remove features. Default max length of
any posted ad is currently set at 30 days. If you sell / trade your
item, please update your ad, or withdraw it when no longer needed. If
you find what you're looking for, please cancel your ad. Thanks, and
have a fun time exploring this area once more ads get posted. Contact
the webmaster, N5NTG, via <mailto:info@sanantoniohams.org>email if
you have problems or questions with this site.

All ads will be moderated to prevent obvious fraud, but I'll be
fairly lenient while we get the usage up and running. As it says on
the web site, if you want to suggest a new category, simply suggest
it to me and we'll consider it.

So far, here are the categories I've created.....

Re: AA5XH SK

Paul Guido
 

Gil will be missed by many in the Amateur Radio Community of South Texas.

His tireless work as a Volunteer Examiner for many years will be remembered
by all who attended one of his test sessions.

One thing I admired about Gil is that he provided test sessions for many
clubs without regard to club politics. His selfless dedication to
testing foucused on providing a comfortable setting for testing, building
solid teams of VE's and making sure that the paperwork was always sent in as
soon as possible after the test.

For many in the area, he was the first person to shake your hand and welcome
you to Amateur Radio after passing your test.

Good buy.

Good buy. Rechargeable are good too, but you can stash stores or these to

REF: San Diego, CA antenna restrictions thread of a few months ago.



Here is one way to open up a productive dialogue with the local authorities,
maybe not as much fun as YOUTUBE.



What not to do: Don't flame the local officials, don't flame the mid-level
managers who are just trying to do their job. But, relate to them or find
someone who can relate to them and then articulate the value of amateur
radio volunteers as it relates to Public Safety and the general good of the
constituency. Notice the existing restriction is 30ft, not 3" as I think was
reported. What follows is the ARLCO CODE and communications I had with the
Senior Planner from San Diego.

=========================================

Dave, here are the ArlCo Zoning Ordinance rules, under Section 31. Special
Provisions,





2. Structures Permitted Above Height Limit

a. Penthouses or roof structures for the housing of elevators, stairways,
tanks, ventilating fans or similar equipment required to operate and
maintain the building, and fire or parapet walls, skylights, radio towers,
steeples, flagpoles, chimneys, smokestacks or similar structures may be
erected above the height limits herein prescribed, but no penthouse or roof
structure or any space above the height limit shall be allowed for the
purpose of providing additional floor space. Such structures shall not
exceed twenty-three (23) feet. Penthouses shall be concealed by exterior
architectural material of the same type or quality as that used on the
exterior walls of the building.

b. Noncommercial radio towers or masts, excluding amateur radio antennas
permitted by Subsection 31.B.2.e., may exceed the height limit by no more
than twenty-five (25) feet.

c. Chimneys and smokestacks which are an integral part of a penthouse may
exceed the height limit by no more than twenty-seven (27) feet.

d. County government and public school communication facilities may be
erected to exceed the height limit or height of existing structures by no
more than fifty (50) feet.

e. Amateur radio antennas shall not exceed seventy-five (75) feet in height
above the ground level. In addition, they shall comply with all of the
following requirements:

(1) No amateur radio antenna, or support structure therefore shall be
located in a front yard, or within twenty-five (25) feet from any street
setback line or within ten (10) feet from any side or rear property line.

(2) Amateur radio antennas shall be located only in side or rear yards. In a
zoning district that does not require a rear yard, the antenna may be placed
on a building's main roof, but not on the penthouse of the building. Amateur
radio antennas are permitted to be placed in the side yard, only when they
are attached to the existing main structures.

(Ord. No. 87-23, 9-1-87; Ord. No. 99-17, 7-13-99)

David,



Thank you for your comments and perspective. We would definitely be
interested in reviewing a copy of Arlington County's ordinance related to
amateur radio antennas. Do you have any information on typical heights of
these types of installations? It sounds like the City's existing 30 foot RS
base zone requirement is too restrictive for most operators to comply with.




Is there a reasonable height within which the majority of operators would be
able to comply based on your experience? The City's intent is of course to
be able to accommodate the majority of these through a ministerial process,
and allow for requests of additional height beyond the base threshold as
needed for effective communication. Thanks again for your assistance.



Amanda Lee,

Senior Planner

To Whom It May Concern:



My name is David Jordan. I am the Chief Information Security Officer and
Advanced Emergency Technology Liaison to the Office of Emergency Management
in Arlington County Government, Virginia which is home to the Pentagon,
National Airport and over 60 thousand Dept. of Defense workers. Since 9/11
the government has moved aggressively to create and implement an Emergency
Operations Plan and associated Standard Operations Procedures that would as
you state in your subject draft document, ". accomplish the City's purpose
of safeguarding the public health, safety, and general welfare, including
neighborhood aesthetics and community character. Part of the Emergency
Support Function 2 responsibilities within OEM is focused upon emergency
communications primarily supported through amateur radio volunteers by way
of an Auxiliary Communications Service developed in part by FEMA and the
FCC. This protocol is called "Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service" RACES
and was designed to enable local, county and state governments the ability
to manage emergency auxiliary communications volunteers. For more details
regarding this protocol go to www.w4ava.org <http://www.w4ava.org/> and
click on the RACES links.



Arlington County Government has advocated for engaged amateur radio
operators who choose to support Public Safety through volunteering as RACES
volunteers. The county has installed amateur radio stations in every fire
station, at the 911 call center, the Emergency Operations Center and has
provided co-location space and antenna attachment rights for a system or VHF
and UHF amateur radio repeaters that would support emergency communications
during emergencies, severe weather events, etc. All this after the county
has just upgraded its 800 radio system to P25. You may as "why" the effort
to ensure there is a back-up plan The answer is because when all else fails
amateur radio will be there! That is the history of this technology and
those that practice and develop the talents of in-depth electronic
communications.



San Diego and Arlington may be on opposite ends of the country but I believe
the two jurisdictions have many similarities. We are world class societies
and as such appreciate the individual and group contributions made by our
constituents. For many years Arlington has had a tower permit process which
has served all concerned parties and enabled constituents to exercise the
privileges granted to them through the FCC amateur radio licenses they hold.




I recommend you do everything possible to encourage and enable your
community of amateur radio operators to fully participate and exercise the
privileges associated with the FCC licenses they hold and in so doing you
will be in the best possible position to achieve the mission noted in your
subject draft document. Like Arlington, San Diego requires a back-up plan
for Emergency Communications. Supporting amateur radio operations within the
jurisdiction in conjunction with best practices and an amateur radio civil
defense protocol managed under Emergency Support Function (ESF) 2 is a great
way to achieve this mission.



Since 9/11 over forty jurisdictions throughout the country have utilized the
training materials provided on the web site listed in the lead paragraph of
this note.



I've visited San Diego several times over the years. It's a great city with
wonderful people and history. Part of that history is the dedicated radio
amateurs that served our nation as radiomen in the Navy, etc. Radio is part
of San Diego's proud heritage. If the city fathers would like to see a copy
of Arlington County's amateur radio permit process language I'd be happy to
forward a copy for reference.



Regards,

David Jordan

for research and reporting purposes.

Attention Group this has recently come up, and personally I would
advise all members to follow the link, and opt out as suggested.
Whether you do or not is entirely upto you of course.... I have :-).

As part of our continuing efforts to serve our list-members we will
pass along any general Yahoo Groups-related announcements that are of
relevance to all of you such as the one below:

Yahoo is Tracking Group Members

If you belong to ANY Yahoo Groups - be aware that Yahoo is now using
"Web Beacons" to track every Yahoo Group user. It's similar to
cookies, but allows Yahoo to record every website and every group you
visit, even when you're not connected to Yahoo. Look at their updated
privacy statement at <http://info.>http://info.
<http://info.yahoo.com/privacy/us/yahoo/details.html>
yahoo.com/privacy/us/yahoo/details.html

About half-way down the page, in the section on *cookies*, you will
see
a link that says *WEB BEACONS*.

Click on the phrase "Web Beacons." On the page that opens, on the
left
find a box entitled "Opt-Out."

In that section find "opt-out of interest-matched advertising" link
that
will let you "opt-out" of their snooping. Click it and then click the
opt-out button on the next page.

Note that Yahoo's invasion of your privacy - and your ability to opt-
out
of it - is not user-specific. It is MACHINE specific. That means you
will have to opt-out on every computer (and browser) you use.

Please forward this to your other groups. You might complain, too,
but
I'm not sure if anyone is listening. I remember when they signed all
users up to get spam and we had to opt out of that a few years ago.
