To All Our ARRL Members in Florida –


I am writing to you today because we are at a critical juncture in our

efforts to obtain passage of 

The Amateur Radio Parity Act in the U.S. Senate (S.1685).


Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL), is not yet supporting the legislation

despite the recent agreement between ARRL and the Community

Associations Institute (CAI).  This agreement is supported by all

parties to the issue and leaves no visible opposition to the bill. 

However, Senator Nelson’s support is critical to the success of our



You are one of well over 40,000 licensed Amateur Radio Operators living

in Florida.  Many of you already live in deed-restricted communities,

and that number grows daily.


If you would like to have the opportunity to have an effective outdoor

antenna but are not currently allowed to do so, or you already have

outdoor antennas and want to support your fellow hams, then we need you

to reach out to Senator Nelson TODAY!  Right away.


Please go to this linked website and follow the prompts. The link will

provide you with a letter that you can send to Senator Nelson.


Thank you.
