Colorado ham helping to ‘tweet’ up support for ARPA
With over 120 cosponsors in the House and Senate, the Amateur Radio Parity Act (ARPA) is gaining momentum. The House version, HR 1301, has been favorably reported out by the House Energy Subcommittee on Communications and Technology and is on its way to the full House Energy and Commerce committee for consideration. This is great news, but there is still a lot of work to do.
Colorado ham Kurt Fehlhauer, KUØO, has created an easy-to-use website to help hams tweet their support for ARPA to their representative and senators. SupportParity.com lists the cosponsors of the bill and makes it easy to tweet your member of Congress to thank them for their support — or encourage them to sign on.
Visit SupportParity.com to see where your members of Congress stand and let them know that your support the bill.
Thanks for doing this. Informative, clean, easy to use website. No excuses for us hams. The site even generates the letters and Tweets for us.
I once contacted one of my representatives in Washington by Email. I got a crappy robo-reply Email from him, and ever since then I’ve received nothing but spam and robo-calls from all sorts of political goons. Never again.
Some people are always negative–I have written to my Congressmen and Women and received personal letters back from them. Not all but I don’t give up !
