Passage of the Parity Act - Options Still Open

Parity Act Options Open Despite Removal from Defense Authorization Act Conference Report

07/25/2018

ARRL Hudson Division Director and ad hoc Legislative Advocacy Committee Chair Mike Lisenco, N2YBB, says removal of Amateur Radio Parity Act (HR 555) language from the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report this week was unfortunate, but does not kill the initiative. The Parity Act would ask the FCC to grant radio amateurs living in deed-restricted communities the right to install effective outdoor antennas. Lisenco said today that while the language was removed from the final NDAA Conference Report, other viable options remain to see the Parity Act succeed.

Only 24 hours to work the special Y8 call signs

The ex-DDR (formerly the East Gemany) call-sign group from Y81A through Y89U, not used for 28 years has been issued especially for the WRTC Championship in Wittenberg, Germany. 

BUT .... These call signs will ONLY be on the air for the 24 hours of the WRTC / IARU HF contest - after that these call signs may never appear on the air again - or perhaps only in another 28 years?
