ARRL Atlantic Division to Sponsor HR.4969 Webinar
The ARRL Atlantic Division will sponsor an informational webinar on HR.4969, “The Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2014,” on Wednesday, August 13, from 9 until 10:30 PM. In June, US Rep Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) introduced HR.4969, with US Rep Joe Courtney (D-CT) as its first co-sponsor. This bipartisan initiative would direct the FCC to apply the “reasonable accommodation” three-part test of the PRB-1 federal pre-emption policy regarding antennas to private land-use restrictions (CC&Rs).
During the webinar, ARRL General Counsel Chris Imlay, W3KD, and ARRL Hudson Division Director Mike Lisenco, N2YBB, will discuss HR.4969, what it would mean for ARRL members and the Amateur Radio community, and how you can help. ARRL Atlantic Division Director Bill Edgar, N3LLR, will serve as moderator.
To participate in the webinar, register as soon as possible.
