Thanks to ARRL efforts on Capitol Hill, language in the 2018 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization Act, just signed by President Donald Trump, resolves the issue of problematic or preclusive rules affecting some rural Amateur Radio towers.

The above link didn't work.  Let's try again.

Thankfully, this legislation was revised before the proposed new rules were codified into regulations.

Nevertheless, be aware that this revision is no guarantee that we're 100% in the clear:
"The remainder of such towers in rural or agricultural areas lower than 200 feet need to only be included in an FAA-maintained database, which will be updated by the owners of such towers."

Whatever that is supposed to mean... every tower or mast over 50' will have to be registered with the FAA? If yes, will a fee be involved?

We'll still need to keep a close watch for any proposed FAA rules.
