The American Radio Relay League announced that lawmakers in three states—Arizona, Maryland and Oklahoma—are considering amateur radio antenna bills that would put the limited federal pre-emption known as PRB-1 into each state’s statutes. The Arizona and Maryland bills would require that municipal land-use or zoning regulations “reasonably accommodate” amateur radio communication per PRB-1.

In Oklahoma, the measure provides that municipal ordinances regulating amateur radio antennas or antenna support structures must allow for the erection of such infrastructure “at a height and dimension sufficient to accommodate amateur radio service communications.”
