Federal Communications Commission.


Petition for reconsideration.


In this document, a Petition for Reconsideration (Petition) has been filed in the Commission's Rulemaking proceeding listed in this document (Amendment of the Amateur Service Rules Governing Vanity and Club Station Call Signs). In the Rulemaking proceeding, the Commission amended the rules governing amateur radio service vanity and club station call signs to, among other things, limit club stations to holding one vanity call sign and limit individuals to serving as the trustee for one club. ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio, formerly known as the American Radio Relay League, Inc. (ARRL), filed a Petition for Reconsideration arguing that the rule amendments adopted by the Commission are capable of being evaded, and thus do not fully effectuate the Commission's intent of preventing individuals from using club station licenses to hoard vanity call signs. ARRL proposes alternate regulatory language that it believes would better prevent hoarding of vanity call signs.


Oppositions to the Petitions must be filed by April 7, 2011. Replies to an opposition must be filed April 18, 2011.
