Amateur Radio Parity Act
Urge Congress to Support the Amateur Radio Parity Act
Help secure the right of Amateur Radio operators to erect an outdoor antenna at our residences.
Amateur radio operators provide communications support for, and participate in public service events on behalf of our communities. During and in the aftermath of disasters and emergencies, when other forms of communications are unavailable, we provide communications for first responders and Federal, state and local governmental agencies and non-governmental agencies, and to our neighbors when communications systems are overloaded or fail. Radio Amateurs contribute to the future of telecommunications as we participate in the development of innovative technology in this digital age. Amateur Radio is non-commercial, and we provide our services at no charge to anyone.
We cannot do any of these things, however, unless we can erect an outdoor antenna at our residences.
Congress is currently considering the "Amateur Radio Parity Act" to protect the rights of Radio Amateurs. Please take action below and urge your U.S. Representative to support this important legislation. Please clink on the link below to show your support.
