The Dangers of using LEAD-FREE Solder on electronics 

ARRL needs your help to support the Amateur Radio Parity Act

Dear ARRL Member-  We need your help!  TODAY!
 For the past year, ARRL has been working in both houses of Congress to promote the Amateur Radio Parity Act.  
This is legislation that would provide some relief on antenna restrictions for Amateurs living in deed-restricted communities. The bills are H.R. 1301 in the House of Representatives and S 1685 in the Senate. 
Complete information on the legislation is available here

We believe that H.R. 1301 will be scheduled for a hearing before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in the near future. Your Congressional representative is a member of that committee.
We need you to contact them and ask for their support of this legislation of vital importance to the future of Amateur Radio.

ARRL has set up a website that makes contacting your Representative an easy task.  Please follow the link to:
When you visit that page, enter your Zip code and your information (name, address, etc.).  An editable draft letter will be created.  Once you make any desired edits, click the “send” button and your letter will be on its way.  
If you prefer to contact your Representative by phone, the site provides that information for you as well.
We are now at a crucial stage in our effort to get the Amateur Radio Parity Act successfully through Congress. The bill cleared the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation on November 18th. We need your help NOW to insure that the bill successfully moves through the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.

WE CAN ONLY SUCCEED WITH YOUR HELP!  Please take a few minutes to let your Representative know this legislation is important to you and all the other Amateurs in your District.
Thank you for your help at this critical juncture.  Let’s get this done!
Kay Craigie, N3KN, President
ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio.
