Say 'NO' to Parity, and 'YES' to Freedom:

Homeowners and Citizens need alternatives to cellular phones. Did you know In the Santa Rosa/Napa fires over 80 cell phone towers burned leaving people with no communications. This is where Amateur, Citizens Band, FRS, and GMRS radio steps in to provide a communications path for the public.

I believe all of the Personal Communications Radio Services have real value and when taken advantage of by the public they can help everyone communicate during difficult situations.

Unfortunately, most Developers don't share my optimistic view of Radio and use CC&R's to ban antennas/transceivers from most new homes.

Please support the "Homeowners Wireless Freedom Act of 2018" by signing my petition at https://www.change.org/p/homeowners-wireless-freedom-act

This has good intentions but I will continue to support the ARRL version because it was the result of negotiation among all interested parties. As a result, it is a compromise but therefore is more likely to be enacted. In contrast, this petition is absolute and unilateral and thus unlikely to get anywhere.
