Important Bill for Radio Amateurs - PASSED!

State Senator Tony Guglielmo introduced a bill about Hams having the legal right to use our mobile HAM radios while driving in CT. As it was, there was no clear ruling and police departments could more or less enforce as they see fit based on the cell phone regulations - hams could be included in these regulations and be cited.

The bill was signed into law by the governor on May 31, 2012 and now excludes amateur radio licensees.

 

Senate Bill 61: AN ACT EXEMPTING AMATEUR RADIO OPERATORS USING HAND-HELD RADIOS FROM THE PROHIBITION ON USING HAND-HELD MOBILE TELEPHONES AND MOBILE ELECTRONIC DEVICES WHILE DRIVING.

Connecticut General Assembly Bill Info

Just a suggestion, we should always carry a license or copy with us in the vehicle. A lot of hard work went into this by a lot of people. Many thanks to Senator Guglielmo, his staff, Bruce Marcus N1XG and his staff, Steve Dube KA1RLA and all other folks we don't know about who were involved.   

UPDATE:

Due to pressure from the Fed's the law was subsequently revised to read "only in case of emergencies".
