According to the “ARRL Letter”, amateur radio operators in the Poway, California area are pleased with a new city ordinance that will allow antenna structures between 35 and 65 feet in height to be erected without “obtaining a special minor use permit.”  Amateur radio operators would be required to notify neighbors within 250 feet of the proposed antenna support system.  ARRL General Counsel Chris Imlay (W3KD) called the  decision “a big change in the well-entrenched attitudes in Poway spanning decades.  So, this was a big win for us.”  A report submitted to the Poway, California City Council concluded that “antenna support structures of up to 65 feet would represent ‘reasonable accommodation‘ under PRB-1, due to the area’s topography.”  Thanks to California hams, Chris Imlay, and city council members, “reasonable accommodation” has been secured for amateur radio operators in this California city.  Progress is being made in small, but significant steps.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
