BREAKING NEWS
____________________________
 
Senate Bill 109- Indiana Antenna legistation initiative
 
Indiana's bill, SB 109, got Gov Frank O'Bannon's signature on April
30. It becomes effective July 1 The bill that cleared the General
Assembly did not contain language incorporating a 75-foot minimum
regulatory antenna structure height, written into the Senate version
of the bill but not included in the version passed by the House. A
House-Senate conference committee cut out the 75-foot minimum, and the
Senate passed the stripped-down measure on a 39-9 roll-call vote.

The bill approved prohibits localities from enacting or enforcing
ordinances, resolutions or orders that do not comply with the PRB-1
limited federal preemption--distilled within the Part 97 Amateur
Service rules in 97.15, "Station antenna structures." Both measures
also require ordinances involving the placement, screening or height
of Amateur Radio antennas based on health, safety or aesthetics to
"reasonably accommodate" Amateur Radio communications and represent
the minimal practicable regulation to accomplish a municipality's or
county's legitimate purpose.

The Indiana law also permits municipalities or counties to act to
protect or preserve historical or architectural districts established
under local, state or federal law.
