If federal law overrules state law, then why is California state law
overruling the Federal Communications Commision on what radio
frequencies amateur radio operators are and aren't allowed to
transmit
on?

If federal law overrules state law, then why is California state law
overruling the Federal Food And Drug Administration on what
ingredients food and drinks through the whole country in all states
may and may not have?

"Coke, Pepsi, Changing Recipes to Avoid California's Cancer Label


Tiny amounts of a carcinogenic chemical found in the drinks lands
them
on the state's warning list.


Thanks to strict nutrition guidelines in California, Pepsi and Coca-
Cola are making a minor adjustment to their ingredients to avoid
being
labeled as carcinogenic in the U.S.' most populous state. The
chemical
in question is 4-methylimidazole, a by-product of the cooking process
used to make the delicious caramel syrup that gives cola drinks their
colouring. Now, studies with lab rats have suggested that a person
would have to drink about 1,000 cans of cola a day for the drink to
possibly cause cancer. Regardless, California has the chemical on its
list of carcinogens that must be disclosed on the labels of any
products containing them. Since neither Coke nor Pepsi want to be
associated with cancer in the U.S.' largest beverage market, they've
instructed their suppliers to alter the process used to make the
caramel colouring so as to decrease the amount of 4-methylimidazole
in
their beverages. Strange that trace elements of a chemical that's
never been proven to cause cancer in humans are a bigger concern for
California's nutrition Stasi than the frighteningly high level of
high-
fructose corn syrup found in the drinks, but that's America for you.
Drink all the obesity- and diabetes-causing sugar-water you want, but
mention the word cancer..".


I guess they didn't learn the first time from the "New Coke" fiasco.

And then you went off on a tangent...

I thought you were going to be on target, but again, your drug
altered mind went astray. You completely missed this:

NEWSLINE FOLLOW-UP: NEW RADAR MAY HAVE CAUSED SOCAL HAM TO
RECEIVE NOV

A follow-up and a possible answer to the question raised
last week of just what aeronautical radar system Gary Dent,
AF6HP, was issued a Notice of Violation by the FCC for
interfering with. Its now been made public that the FAA is
in the process deploying a new generation of Common Air
Route Surveillance Radar that operates in the 23 centimeter
band. Bill Pasternak, WA6ITF, is in the newsroom with what
we know:

--

Well Don, most of what we know comes in the form of a news
release from the ARRL Letter. It says that the deployment
of what is known as the updated Common Air Route
Surveillance Radar has some implications for the use of the
1240 to 1300 MHz band by radio amateurs.

According to the ARRL story, the improved Common Air Route
Surveillance Radar systems are being installed in several
dozen locations throughout the country, albeit the exact
placement has not been announced. And as stated, this radar
system is a primary user of the band meaning that any and
all other users must protect it from any man made
interference. That includes amateur radio which holds
secondary status.

At this point, all that's really known is that the radar
will use various frequencies in the 1240-1350 MHz range with
an occupied bandwidth of about 3 MHz. As such, the League
says that in the vicinity of these radars, amateur operation
may be precluded in a portion of the 23 cm band.

The ARRL says that it is in contact with FAA engineers and
that it anticipates that the constraints on amateur use of
the band will be limited to those necessary to protect
aviation safety. This of course is something that cannot
ever be compromised.

For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Bill Pasternak, WA6ITF,
in the newsroom in Los Angeles.

It's obvious to me, just by observation over the years (I am 76) that
federal law does not supercede local laws. Local courts and judges break
constitutional law every day as a routine matter. Our whole traffic court
system is an exercise in stealing money from the citizenry by taking away
their constitutional rights.
