I'd suggest using one of the rebuttals used by a hater--that this legislation only affects a very small percentage of those living under HOAs.  It is then obvious that the negative aspects, minimal and if any, will be far outweighed by the benefits offered by allowing licensed amateurs some consideration by Federal law.

Agreed. It's not as if every other house will sport a vertical or dipole. You might have maybe one or two hams (if that) in a large subdivision. There's much more chance of (unsightly) TV antennas, which are allowed by law, to spring up as people "cut the cord" and opt for free over-the-air TV. It could happen, as cable and satellite service prices continue to skyrocket...back to the days of rooftop aluminum.

Actually, the CAI did not support ARPA at all...but it got passed in the House and got submitted in the Senate. They focused on Sen Nelson (and a Senator in CA...name escapes me right now) to get on their side. Nelson wanted more concessions even after the League agreed to several changes (see  my initial post in this thread) which many hams could no longer support (including me).

Thanks for the clarification.  I'm a little surprised, actually, ARPA appears to be a pretty good deal for the CAI.

BUT...they wanted an even "better" deal once the ARRL agreed to the prior antenna installation permission clause and the other language changes!

To Anyone:

Any suggestions on how HR 555 / S 1534 can be made acceptable???


Nope, we would rather just complain about the ARRL...


I thought so.... So here's my latest ARRL complaint: They're studying another Entry Level Amateur Radio License scheme.  OMG: Here we go again, new license, NEW MANUALS to sell...
