Using the invariance of c , proper length, and mass from relativity, we develop a model for testing the local position invariance of Planck's constant. Relativity constrains fundamental constants in such a way that variations of Planck's constant h and the electric charge e would be observable, if they occur. Our model is based on the presumption that general relativity is correct and that its underlying assumptions extend to the microscopic domain, down to the scale of the Bohr radius.
