US Forest Service fee increase proposal for amateur radio equipment on USFS land

The US Forest Service is proposing to implement a statutorily required annual fee for new and existing communications use authorizations to cover the costs of administering its authorization program. The Forest Service proposal results from requirements set forth in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018.

Some repeaters in the county are on USFS land, such as the Anthony Peak repeater in Round Valley. If the fee increase takes effect, it will become prohibitively expensive to keep the equipment at many of these sites.

Hams are encouraged to submit comments to the USFS either online or via mail. All comments must include the identifier RIN 0596-AD44. The deadline for submissions is February 22nd.
