ARRL Launches Lobbying Drive for Passage of Parity Act

ARRL President Rick Roderick, K5UR, is urging all League members to contact their U.S. Senators, encouraging them to support S. 1534, the Senate version of the Amateur Radio Parity Act, which already passed the House as H.R. 555. The bill is intended to loosen restrictions on amateur radio antennas in deed-restricted and/or homeowner association-controlled developments. 

[Not everyone feels this bill is a good deal for hams - see N3JT's "Food for Thought: Why H.R. 555 is Not Good (Enough) for Hams" in our August issue. - ed.]
