Long time. I'm back. I am also a ham radio operator.

Keep in mind that your FCC issued callsign is VERY public info, lists your name and address for ANYONE to see in the FCC database. You are required to state your callsign every 15 minutes and at the end of every transmission on ham frequencies. As I have stated before in previous posts I need to maintain anonymity, therefore I will not divulge my callsign in this forum.

As for transmitting, no mayor or municipality can regulate RF transmissions, only FCC. Same principle as pre-emption. Municipalities can regulate antenna towers from a engineering structural standpoint. Check PRB-1 for further info.

Hope this helps.

So much for me having it on my Jeeps license plate... Why do I doubt your a ham?

Does your post look accurate to you?
Well maybe you got licensed but never got on the air.

This also applies to homeowners associations, trailer parks, etc... and with restrictions, apartment complexes and townhouses.

As to the Comcrap tech cutting the WoW line, stupidity is not a valid defense for malicious destruction of property.  Next time, file a police report.

HOA/parks can limit your ability to put up an antenna (or erect any plant/device, for that matter -- the lease or HOA Bylaws are the governing documents). But not your ability to transmit.

Not completely accurate.  I won't address parks, but HOA can not regulate antennas.  If it's a condo complex, they can have some say so over how an antenna gets attached and potential damage it may cause to common areas.
{edit}  This only pertains to broadcast source reception antennas, not Ham :(

This is all very interesting. I don't like the idea of broadcasting identifying info.

We have our addresses on are houses, our license plates are always in view on our cars.
I don't really like it I guess but I've never met a HAM that cared.

Also to correct GQ, HAMs ID every 10 minutes.. we all know this. ;)

When that comcast tech came and disconnected my wow and I had to chew him up about it I made him go hook it back up, he was pulling the work order crap out on me but I wasn't letting him get in his truck and drive away after what he had just done.  I think I scared him enough to go fix what he just did to me because at first he didn't give two craps and was just walking away to his truck until I beat him there and stood in his way.

Well, at least you didn't do this to your Comcast tech.

Does tech get the use of 10m (28Mhz +/-) in the US? If so point your antenna towards Scotland and I might hear you and if the Ionosphere is not acting up you might even hear me. We are  still in the UK, though getting closer to a move date which is good and looking forward to being back in the states. Call sign is MM6WMU

Im not a ham but my son is, inactive now.

I thought this thread was about exemption to PFZs for hams when I read the title.
