Amateur Radio Case Attracts Attention of FCC Commissioner

Thanks to Gene, KF5EJI, for the suggestion.

From, an interesting article regarding the ALJ system and one particular amateur accused of breaking the rules.

Frankly, my thoughts are the operator should be banned for life for his actions. There is no place in Amateur Radio for willful interfering, period. Regardless if the Judge WAS biased against him, he should never be licensed to transmit again. The fact that he still has privileges is maddening.

  1. My thoughts, exactly, Joey. I have frequently heard several jammers on the 40-M band who incessantly key up to interfere with legal and lawful band-users. Many of these jammers want to “own” a particular frequency and choose to “claim” the frequency and seek run off others who might legitimately have landed on a particular frequency on which to communicate. I have heard profane speech and implied threats and overt threats of bodily harm levied at lawful users. Such activity is a best juvenile, at worst, malicious and illegal and certainly violates one or more sections of Part 97 of the Code of Federal Regulations. You’d think a $25,000 fine from the FCC would deter such activity, but evidently not.
