I also think its great and hope it stands up to a court test. If only
more areas had laws like this.... unfortunately we probably won't see
much local action on this front as it most areas it is a relatively
minor threat to the public and the towns are just going to push it back
on the fcc. It could also become a headache for hams when the local
cops who don't know about ham radio try to enforce it... I would think
it would be very important for hams in an area that adopts a law like
this to help instruct the local police on the difference between legal
cb, legal ham activity, and illegal activity.
