Comment:

On Tuesday, 08 August 2017, I received a letter from ARRL President Rick Roderick (K5UR) asking for our support of the recently passed House of Representatives “Amateur Radio Parity Act.”  The U.S. Senate version of the bill is S. 1534 and is being discussed this week. Rick is asking for you to send letters of support to our Hawaii U.S. Senators.

Here’s the text of Rick’s letter:

“August 8, 2017

Dear ARRL Member:

Based on feedback I’ve received, it seems to me that some members still don’t fully understand certain features of the Amateur Radio Parity Act (ARPA) and what it is meant to do. To make things clearer, we have developed an FAQ in the format of questions and answers. Please take a few minutes and read the FAQ to learn more about the ARPA.
Here is the direct link:

Here is another link with additional information:

Thanks to those of you who have written your Senators in support of the ARPA. If you have not done so, please do so by clicking on the link below. It only takes a minute.
