    So you want to complain ... #hamradio #ARRL

    Living in a Homeowners Association property or community with tower ordinances that won't allow your 50-foot tower? How about being a PART of
    your community, rather than a resident of it?For years, the author has
    served on community boards. One such board is your City Planning
    Commission. That group writes the planning and zoning items that residents
    are asked to observe.How about volunteering to serve on the board? When a
    ham wants to put up a 50-foot tower when only a 35-foot one is allow, would
    you want someone on the committee that understands the goal?In the years of service, not one ham has asked for a variance. Rather, there are more
    willing to complain. Nevertheless, folks are there to be helpful.Didn't
    get your variance or live in an HOA? RemoteHams is your ticket for
    worldwide communications worldwide. Set up your remote at a friends house
    who has a tall tall tower. Use RemoteHams to control it. Clubs, there's
    an idea for you for that ARRL grant program may provide. Isn't there a repeater already on that tall tall tower with room for an HF transceiver
    and antenna?Control is granted by administrators. Real time remote of frequency, mode, power, and even approving, removing, and banning users is provided.Was it Hannibal that said "I will find a way or make one"? Time
    to make a way.
