Quoting another persons comments:

Apparently those whom have served in the Military are some sort of "sub
While one wears a Military Uniform, you get NO CHOICE where you get
orders where you go next.
Yet you can, (I Have!), be stationed on a particular duty station, while
the Housing is OFF that duty station.
Choice - ZERO, result - NO Amateur Radio operation where you are housed.
Only option is to operate on the duty station while you are on it. That
means while you are performing your duties.
One did have the option of applying to operate of the duty station, go
through all sort of hoops and inspections, give it over a year to year
and a half, "maybe" get permission, "maybe" not. If allowed, you are
subject to random inspection of your station on a 24/7 basis. Any
perceived "violation", actual or not, - your entire station is
confiscated with no chance to appeal nor have the equipment returned.
Hmmmm, sounds like a Communist government methodology. Yet our
government calls them Allies!
On this basis, I will definitely be promoting H.R. 1301!
I already have issues with City Zoning stating "If you erect a tower,
YOU must ENSURE that should it fall, it falls on YOUR property only.
These are sub acre lots. A 50 foot tower exceeds their statement.
So you do the best you can under the conditions you are stuck with.
BTW - This was NOT a covenant, there is NO HOA, you have to go to the
City Zoning folks and inquire as to what if any restrictions there are.
THEN they will tell you.
Yet, they changed the noise statute for the city from no excess noise
after 10PM, and before 8AM. (After having purchased the house and lived
in it for over a decade!) Didn't even put it in the newspaper or any
other form to allow input from the population!
Now it only applies to Construction work.
So some folks hold backyard parties that run into the wee hours of 2AM
or 3AM, disrupt the sleep of those that have shift work, and others that
have to get up and go to work around 4:30 AM or just a bit later.
Some individuals do have a choice, some only find out later what they
are allowed to do.
City, County, State, and Federal regulations are already biting into the
I definitely will do MY part to break this open!
