Amateur Radio Parity Act

Please take a few moments of your time to contact your respective United States Senators and urge the to support S. 1534, the Amateur Radio Parity Act.  This bill passed through the House of Representatives as H.R 555 and will be going before the Senate for vote.

The bill "allows for effective outdoor Amateur Radio antennas for public service and emergency communications while protecting the prerogative of community associations."  The language of this bill, which represents a mutually acceptable compromise, was agreed to by both the ARRL and the Community Associations Institute, which represents home owners associations.

The ARRL has made this super easy to do.  Just go to and hit the "Send Message" button. You will be prompted for your zip code, your name and your street address. An e-mail encouraging passing of this legislation will be sent to both of your state's U.S. Senators.

You need not be a member of the ARRL in order to make use of this service.
