HR2160 http://www.arrl.org/hr2160 is a bill before the House to require the
Department of Homeland Security to Study Impediments to Ham Radio Emergency
Communications with the guidance of the ARRL. The study should likely indicate
that the current CC&R antenna restrictions pose a major impediment/hazard to
public safety and should be superseded by Congress. The Bill, sponsored by
Senator Lieberman, has already unanimously passed the Senate. The good news is
that Greg Walden W7EQI, one of the main sponsors of HR2160, is not chairmen of
the Communications subcommittee so that he can directly influence its movement
through the house. There is now a very good chance that HR2160 will pass this
year... and the end of CC&R's could happen as early as next year....


Walden, W7EQI, Tweets News of New Subcommittee Chairmanship
[cid:image003.jpg@01CBADA6.B7A71D30 <mailto:image003.jpg%4001CBADA6.B7A71D30> ]

US Representative Greg Walden, W7EQI (R-OR), tweeted news of his appointment in
Morse code.

When US Representative Greg Walden, W7EQI (R-OR), learned December 16 that he
would be chairing the House Subcommittee on Communications, Technology and the
Internet when the 112th Congress convened in January, he let the world know
about it by tweeting the news in Morse code. "Just the ham radio operator in me
having fun," he posted to his official Web page. The subcommittee has
jurisdiction over "interstate and foreign telecommunications including, but not
limited to all telecommunication and information transmission by broadcast,
radio, wire, microwave, satellite or other mode."
ARRL Chief Executive Officer David Sumner, K1ZZ, was pleased to hear the news:
"We're delighted that the subcommittee is in the hands of such a well-qualified
chairman. Greg was an early cosponsor of HR2160<http://www.arrl.org/hr2160>, and
while he may not always be able to agree with every ARRL position, we know his
door will always be open to us."

Re: Proposed ordinance for San Antonio

Louis Upton
 

Pretty much!
What they did not do, was put the real teeth in it! Which is the phrasing used by some other cities, such as, if you are involved in a MVA while texting, that results in injury or death, the fine is xxx or xxx time in jail! If the accident involves the injury or death of a minor, the fine is xxxxxxxxxxx and xxxxxxxxxxxx days in jail.

Cities that have used that phrasing, have actually seen a significant reduction of urban accidents!

This item is on the agenda for the Thursday October 7 San Antonio City Council meeting.

"RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends Amending Chapter 19, Article VII of the City Code, by adding a new section under Section 19, which will prohibit the use of a hand-held mobile communications device to send, read, or write a text message, or engage in any other use of the device besides dialing telephone numbers or talking to another person, while operating a motor vehicle, and providing for a fine of up to $200 per violation."

How will this apply to your ham radio mobile operation?

1. APRS?
2. D-STAR?
3. changing channel on your handie?
4. other?

The ordinance is supposed to prevent internet texting, websurfing, watching movies, etc., using mobile phones. What can we do to assure that this dragnet ordinance doesn't inadvertently catch radio amateurs?

The background memo for the ordinance is at

Hello all,

I have been working with Lee (earlier) and Paul (just today) to make the following changes to the SARC web site:

- Update the next meeting advertisement to December 9th
- Changed the advertisement in the "meetings and nets" area at the bottom of the home page to indicate our standing schedule (i.e. second Thursday of each month)
- Updated the fiesta link to read "..2011" (on home page only since the global change I expected did not occur. Looking into that...)
- Updated the target of the fiesta link to read "..2011" but more content is needed and I would like to include a way for users to print a PDF of the registration form to allow us to start getting earlier registrations in... We should include a map, too.

J. C. - Do you have a final version of the registration form ready? The one you sent earlier is marked "DRAFT".

Cheers and LMK if questions, etc
