CQ Magazine did a good job summarizing the current controversy over the
Amateur Radio Parity Act, providing useful links, here:
At the bottom of the page you will find links to documents in support of
the bill by the ARRL's General Counsel, Chris Imlay, W3KD, and papers
written by prominent attorneys who strongly oppose the bill, one by Fred
Hopengarten, K1VR (author of *Antenna Zoning for the Radio Amateur*), and
the other by Jim Talens, N3JT (retired FCC attorney).
It is very important to contact your Senators to let them know how you feel
about HR-555 / S.1534.
Personally I agree with both K1VR and N3JT that this bill, if passed, will
do more harm than good. Like me, you may not live in an HOA development
now, but you may want to move to one some day, so this bill could affect
all contesters and DXers.
