California Court Issues Mixed Decision on Ham Antenna Case

A California appeals court has invalidated a municipal antenna ordinance as unenforceable because it was too vague, but told Palmdale amateur Alec Zubarau, WB6X, that he would not be able to keep up his HF antenna. According to the ARRL Letter, the court said that permitting Zubarau to keep his VHF/UHF vertical antenna constituted "reasonable accommodation" because it allowed him to be active in some part of amateur radio.
