Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions webinar set

On April 27, 2011, the West Gulf Division hosted a webinar on municipal
ordinances titled “Antenna Ordinances, You and the ARRL”.  Over 450
members registered for that webinar.  During the Q&A period after the
presentation, it became obvious that many members were also concerned
about restrictive Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) that are so common in Homeowner’s Associations.   Since the membership wanted more information, the West Gulf Division has scheduled a webinar about CC&R’s with the cooperation of Atlantic Division Director, Bill Edgar, N3LLR.

On Wednesday, June 1, 2011 at 8:00 PM CDT, ARRL West Gulf Division
Director David Woolweaver, K5RAV -- along with ARRL General Counsel
Chris Imlay, W3KD, and noted antenna zoning lawyer Fred Hopengarten,
K1VR -- will present “Antenna CC&Rs, You and the ARRL”.  The
webinar is co-hosted by ARRL Atlantic Division Director Bill Edgar,

The scope of the webinar will be an overview the impact that private
contracts land use provisions, such as homeowner’s association
covenants and deed restrictions, impact amateurs.  The webinar will
highlight how CC&R’s differ from public laws such as zoning
ordinances and governmental restrictions (which are covered under
PRB-1).  The presenters will also discuss some common approaches on how
amateurs might try to address these restrictive covenants.  Following
the presentations by Imlay and Hopengarten, participants will have the
opportunity to submit written questions to the moderator for the
presenter’s consideration.

Please note this is only a general information forum. While useful
information will be shared, the presenters will not be answering legal
questions directly geared towards resolving any specific CC&R. They
will not have the full facts of the situation and may not be licensed
to practice in your state.  If you are involved in a specific
situation, you should contact the ARRL Regulatory Information Office at with a request for assistance.  Regulatory Information
Manager Dan Henderson, N1ND, will be happy to provide you with
information and contacts for your specific situation.
