RADIO LAW: HAM GATHERING SIGNATURES ON PETITION TO VOID ANTENNA PROHIBITIONS
N4UM tells Newsline that he has begun a petition drive to the FCC. This, in an
attempt to get the regulatory agency to void antenna prohibitions by developers
and Home Owners Associations.
As of this report the petition has garnered over 1000 signatures. N4UM says
that he is doing this now because the FCC is currently requesting formal
comments on emergency communications in amateur radio. The agency also wants to
know the effects of impediments to the amateur radio service as part of the
Docket GN 12-91 inquiry.
Comments on this federal study close on May 17th. N4UM says that his petition
will also close on this same day. You can find his petition on-line at
I don't know how much good this will do, but I can't see how it could hurt any
pending efforts. At minimum it will bring some more attention to the subject by
all concerned. In any case, PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION!
