Re: Linear amplifiers

You can find the relevant regulations in PDF form on the ARRL web site.
Basically, you can homebrew an amp without certification. You will still need to meet the emissions standards in Part 97.

Re: Antenna restrictions petition to FCC

A friend of mine points out one thing about petitions to the FCC:

"Only problem is FCC has a format for filings, and a petition is not acceptable for
this request for filing. You have to go online at FCC with the docket or proceeding
number and file your comments by filling in a form there at FCC web site. It is
pretty simple, and I have done it in the past,... "

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.

ARLB007 FCC Seeks Public Comments on Emergency Communications by Amateur
Radio and Impediments to Amateur Radio Communications

In response to the Congressional directive to prepare a study to assess
Amateur Radio's role in emergency and disaster communications and the impact
of private land use regulations on the amateur community's ability to
provide such communications, the FCC issued DA 12-523 soliciting comments
from the public. The period for public comment runs until May 17, 2012.

"As part of the study contained in Public Law No. 112-96, the Commission has
opened a 45 day period for comments to be filed on the issue," said ARRL
Regulatory Information Manager Dan Henderson, N1ND. "Because of the short
deadline for the study to be completed and presented to Congress -- before
the end of August -- the ARRL and the amateur community must quickly
mobilize their response."

The FCC Public Notice focuses on two specific areas for comments.
The first is the role that Amateur Radio has played and continues to play to
support emergency and disaster relief organizations, such as FEMA and
local/state emergency management agencies. The second is to determine
impediments to enhanced Amateur Radio communications. This would include the
impact that private land-use regulations -- such as deed restrictions and
homeowner association covenants -- have on the ability of licensed amateurs
to fully participate in providing support communications to the served
agencies.

"This study is not about zoning ordinances or regulations adopted by the
local or state governments," Henderson explained. "Amateurs already have the
limited protection of PRB-1 to assist them with those situations. The areas
of concern here are the limitations that are placed on a property when it is
purchased, either as part of the deed of sale or by restrictions imposed by
the neighborhood/homeowner's association. Those restrictions -- sometimes
referred to as CC&Rs -- are not currently covered by the FCC's PRB-1
decision from 1985."

To allow the ARRL to quickly collect and collate relevant information from
the amateur community to help support the filing it will make with the FCC
on this issue, a website has been setup. The site --
www.arrl.org/ccr-study-information -- provides details about what kind of
information is needed by the ARRL.

Also on the site, you will find links to two online data collection forms.
The first form allows you to provide information about specific emergency
communications in which Amateur Radio has played a role since January 2000.
The second form asks for specific information on the CC&Rs/deed restrictions
that control your property. It also asks you to provide information on how
those restrictions have impacted your ability to fully support emergency
communications.

"Whether you are an ARRL member or not, your information and situation are
important to helping us make the case for all amateurs," Henderson said.
"Whether your support communications are with ARES, RACES, SKYWARN, CERT or
other emergency and disaster groups, your voice should be heard. If you
cannot operate effectively from home during an emergency because CC&Rs
prohibit adequate antennas on your property, that is important to document
and quantify. This issue affects all of Amateur Radio, not just ARRL
members."

Henderson said that due to the short timeframe that the FCC has allotted for
public comment, time is of the essence. In order to allow the ARRL to
develop its comments, the ARRL asks that all information sent by the amateur
community be received at the ARRL no later than April 25, 2012: "We realize
this is a very short turnaround asking for your response, but this is based
on the time provided by the Commission for the comment window."

It is important that when you provide specifics of your CC&R, you also
provide the ARRL with a copy of its actual wording. If you have the CC&R in
a digital format (or you can scan the document into a file), it can either
be uploaded through the website above or it can be sent via an e-mail to
CCRinfo@arrl.org . If you do not have an electronic format, a hard copy may
be sent via US mail to: CCR Study Information, ARRL, 225 Main St, Newington,
CT 06111.

"We need factual, specific details," Henderson said. "The more accurate
information we have -- including copies of the CC&R language -- the stronger
case we can make. Having copies of the exact CC&Rs is important. It allows
us to demonstrate the wide variation of restrictions. Including the specific
text is as important as any other piece of information you provide."

If you have questions about what is being requested, you may contact the
ARRL Regulatory Information Office via e-mail at reginfo@arrl.org. "Again,
time is of the essence in this matter,"
Henderson said. "This is the best opportunity that amateurs have had to
address the impact of overly burdensome private land use restrictions. If
Amateur Radio is to succeed in this effort, it is going to take all of us
working together."

Re: Public Service Events..

Lee Besing
 

There are multiple large public service events happening in Central Texas over the next month or two, or three. The info below is about the ones I’m aware of, mostly those around the San Antonio area, plus the biggest bicycle event in Texas, the BPMS150 in Houston. Feel free to share / re-post (carefully) this information. None of it is classified as “secret”. We need help from hams, no matter what club or group you belong to. This is truly a way for Ham Operators to shine, and for new Hams to get their feet wet with public service. Or at least that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!

If you want your event posted on SAHams.org, contact Lee Besing, N5NTG, at info@sanantoniohams.org.

I apologize if you receive multiple copies of this message (one time send), as I also sent to various ham radio lists, mostly in the Central South Texas area. I’ll be preparing a San Antonio Hams newsletter later this week, to send out to the 400+ hams who have subscribed to it as well. If you want to be added to the SAHams list (free subscription), simply visit www.SanAntonioHams.org and look for the subscription link at the top, all I need is your name, call sign & email address. – Lee N5NTG

Ham Operators Needed – Public Service Events <http://sanantoniohams.org/blog/?p=5930>

Spring is in the air, and our calendar list of events is springing into action. We’ll eventually get all of these posted to the actual online calendar, but here is the quick and dirty listing of the next few major public service events where Hams are needed here in the Central / South Texas area.

* March 25th – Tall Texan Triathlon (Boerne), 1 day event. Participants swim in Boerne City Lake, ride their bikes 56 miles (route thru Waring), and run 12 miles. Hams needed at checkpoints / rest stops on the ride and run portion of the route, no need to get your radio wet in the lake. Gordon Dial K5SUZ coordinating. Contact him by phone (only) at 210-410-9518. No email.
* March 25th - Capitol 10K Race & Fun Run- 35th Anniversary! 35th Anniversary - Sunday, March 25, 2012. Jeff Schmidt, N5MNW, coordinating. Contact Jeff at N5MNW@arrl.net
* April 21-22nd – BPMS150 (Houston to Austin), 2 day event, arrive Friday night before to get free hotel room for SAG Hams. Using dual band mobile radios (preferred) because some nets are on VHF (2 meter) and others on UHF. Lee Besing, N5NTG, & Charlie Land, KC5NKK coordinating from San Antonio’s end. Contact Lee at 210-771-7075 or email info@sanantoniohams.org, Contact Charlie at 512-796-7565 or email at kc5nkk@hillcountryreact.org. If you want another assignment, other than SAG, we’ll get you in touch with the proper coordinators from the Houston group, or the Austin group.
* April 22nd – Wildflower 100 Bicycle Tour (San Antonio), 1 day event, start / end at Retama Park (IH-35 & 1604 area). SAG Hams and Rest Stop Hams needed. Gordon Dial K5SUZ coordinating. Contact him by phone (only) at 210-410-9518. No email.
* May 5th – Central Texas Tour de Cure (Austin), 1 day event. Start / Finish at Travis Expo Center. 5 routes, many rest stop hams & SAG Hams needed, plus net control. Using the Austin 146.94 repeater most likely. Jeff Schmidt, N5MNW, coordinating. Contact Jeff at n5mnw@arrl.net or Lee at info@sanantoniohams.org to volunteer.
* May 19th – South Texas Tour de Cure (Boerne / San Antonio), 1 day event. Start / Finish at Champion High School in Boerne, Texas. 5 routes, 8 rest stops, 8 SAG Hams (plus navigator), net control help, etc. Lee Besing, N5NTG, coordinating. Contact Lee at info@sanantoniohams.org to volunteer.
* June 9-10th – Texas Water Safari, multi-day event, but San Antonio hams usually only handle Day 1, way into the night on some locations. This year is their 50th anniversary! Visit http://www.texaswatersafari.org for info about the event. Eric Olson, WB5ZJQ, coordinating. Contact Eric by email at wb5zjq@sarepeater.net <mailto:wb5zjq@sarepeater.net?subject=Request%20SARO%20%20Info> to volunteer. Packet Radio used to transmit canoe numbers to other stations down the river. Some positions are short (closer to start line), and others are mosquito bait (late into the night). This event can be lots of fun, sort of a mini-Field Day event, combined with a picnic. Every location is different.
* June 23-24th – Field Day Weekend. We’ll be posting locations for the various organized ham clubs in the upcoming weeks, and for the unorganized ones as well. So far, I’m aware of the plans for SARC, AARO, KARS, GVARC and ROOST Ham Clubs in the San Antonio Metro area and vicinity.

See more details below for the BPMS150 and Tour de Cure events…
