Subchapter 011 : Miscellaneous Regulatory Powers

(Cite as: 24 V.S.A. § 2296)
  • § 2296. Regulation of amateur radio

    (a) As used in this section:

    (1) "Amateur radio" means the use of amateur radio and amateur satellite radio frequencies and services by qualified and federally authorized persons of any age who are interested in radio technique without pecuniary interest.

    (2) "Antenna" means an array of wires, tubing, or the like used for the transmission and reception of radio waves.

    (3) "Antenna support structure" means a structure or framework that is designed to elevate an antenna above the ground for the purpose of increasing the effective communications range and reliability of an amateur radio station. Amateur radio antenna support structures are removable by design and therefore are a removable structure for assessment purposes.

    (b) Notwithstanding subdivision 2291(19) of this title, a municipal ordinance regulating amateur radio antenna or amateur radio antenna support structures shall comply with the requirements of 47 C.F.R. § 97.15(b), as amended from time to time, by allowing for the erection of an amateur radio antenna or an amateur radio antenna support structure at a height and dimension sufficient to accommodate amateur radio service communications. (Added 2005, No. 200 (Adj. Sess.), § 2.)
