Clarity on the Amateur Radio Parity Act

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:

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.

Solar eclipse is coming, Aug 21. Here is what you will be able to see based on your Zip Code

On Monday August 21, a solar eclipse will cut across the entire United States. And wherever you are, you will be able to see it. Even though the “totality” — the area where the sun is completely blocked out by the moon — is only 70 miles wide, the whole country (even Alaska and Hawaii) will experience a partial eclipse.  This is what you’ll see, and the time you’ll see it, in your zip code.

ENTER YOUR ZIP CODE HERE!

Solar Eclipse QSO Party (SEQP - http://www.hamsci.org/seqp-rules), sponsored by HamSCI, will take place on August 21, 1400 to 2200 UTC.
