Balch Law Group


Amateur Radio

Radio Amateurs face lots of challenges when setting up their shacks. Not least among them is antipathy from neighbors, landlords or local governments. You need a lawyer who understands your needs and can help you navigate the hostile waters surrounding our hobby.

As an Amateur Extra class licensee (call sign KS4MM) and ARRL Volunteer Counsel, attorney Chris Balch understands the science and art that is Amateur Radio. He excels at translating your desires into language non-hams can understand and relate to. Do the restrictive covenants in the neighborhood you are considering purchasing a home prevent antennas? What kind of antennas are prevented? Are there zoning or permitting questions to be resolved with local government, neighborhood associations, or historical districts? Only an experienced and competent attorney, like Chris, can answer those questions as it applies to your situation.

The old saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” is especially true for hams. When it comes to building an antenna to go with that new rig so you can finally complete your DXCC or compete more effectively in the next contest, knowing your options in advance is much more cost-effective than the fines and litigation (or removal costs) that follow a poor choice.
