ARRL West Gulf Division to Present Webinar on Antennas and Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs)

05/25/2011

On Wednesday, June 1 at 9 PM (EDT), ARRL West Gulf Division Director David Woolweaver, K5RAV -- along with ARRL General Counsel Chris Imlay, W3KD, and noted antenna zoning lawyer Fred Hopengarten, K1VR -- will present Antennas, CC&Rs and You. The webinar is hosted by ARRL Atlantic Division Director Bill Edgar, N3LLR.

The scope of the webinar will be an overview of the impact that private contracts and land use provisions -- such as homeowners association covenants and deed restrictions -- impact amateurs. The webinar will highlight how CC&Rs differ from public laws, such as zoning ordinances and governmental restrictions (which are covered under PRB-1). The presenters will also discuss some common approaches on how amateurs might try to address these restrictive covenants. Following the presentations by Imlay and Hopengarten, participants will have the opportunity to ask general questions related to the topic.

Please note this is only a general information forum. While useful information will be shared, the presenters will not be answering legal questions directly geared towards resolving any specific CC&R or antenna zoning situation. They will not have the full facts of the situation and may not be licensed to practice in your state. If you are involved in a specific antenna zoning situation, you should contact the ARRL Regulatory Information Office via e-mail with a request for assistance. Regulatory Information Manager Dan Henderson, N1ND, will be happy to provide you with information and contacts for your specific situation.
