This certainly could hamper "Single Op--No Driver" category!  But I presume that 
others in the mobile categories would not be inhibited.  

Interesting that you said "ban on the use....while driving".  Wonder if handfree 
with a  Blue tooth device would be allowed.  

Ft Rucker in Ozark, AL has made it illegal to use a cell phone while driving!  As 
far as I know they will allow handfree operation.  

Interesting to see how this will work out...  If GA does this, I am sure that many 
of the other states will follow.

I just read a review of Georgia House Bill 19...it includes a ban on the use of a 
cell phones while driving, and also included in the ban is the use of ham radios 
or citizen band units!! We need to get the word out on this bill, and talk with/write 
our representatives that Ham radio needs to be lifted from this bill!! It will end 
ham radio mobil operations completely! No more Ga QSO party etc.....de Rick
