Hello Dr Schrier,
You are my WA-08 representative.
I am a member of Issaquah Amateur Radio Club and the Issaquah Citizen Corps.
We are volunteer first responders. We need means to communicate.
(Note: the mayor of Issaquah and her husband are trained first responders, too.)
HOA = Home Owners Association
Some HOA restrict amateur radio antennas, usually for aesthetic reasons.
I have amateur radio antennas, one disguised as a flagpole.
This has utility WHEN an earthquake hits our neighborhood.
(Hopefully, not in my lifetime.)
My request, as a constituent: support HR 9670, in the current congress or the next.
Support should be bipartisan; most citizens want to survive environmental disasters.
