Action on Amateur Radio Parity Act

H.R. 1301, the so-called Amateur Radio Parity Act, which would guarantee hams living in deed-restricted developments the right to "effective outdoor … antennas," was passed by the House of Representatives on September 12 by a voice vote.

At press time, the bill was still awaiting action in the Senate and the ARRL was urging all amateurs to contact their senators in support of the legislation.

The ARRL has a page on the "Rally Congress" website that will generate letters for you, based on your address. The link is: <>. (CQ joins ARRL in supporting passage of this bill and encouraging readers to e-mail their senators.)
