FCC Denies California Man's Petition for Reconsideration and Upholds $24,000 Fine for Unlicensed Radio Operations, Refusing Inspection of Radio Equipment:

In June 2011, the FCC issued a Forfeiture Order in the amount of $24,000 to Kevin W. Bondy of Encino, California for engaging in unlicensed radio operation and intentional interference to licensed radio operations and for refusing to allow an inspection of his radio equipment by FCC personnel. Following a Petition for Reconsideration filed by Bondy, the FCC issued a Memorandum Report & Order on February 15, upholding the $24,000 fine.

In assessing the $24,000 fine, the FCC noted that it was responsible for making and enforcing regulations to prevent interference and to maintain control over the use of the radio spectrum in a manner that promotes the public interest and convenience. "Bondy's acts cut at the heart of the Commission's responsibilities to protect the nation's airwaves and regulate use of the spectrum," the 2011 Forfeiture Order said. "Bondy operated a radio without a license on the specific frequencies assigned and licensed by the Commission to The Oaks Shopping Center for the explicit and expressed purpose of prohibiting The Oaks's use of its licensed frequencies. This type of conduct inhibits the Commission's ability to effectively regulate and maintain control over the use of the spectrum and will not be tolerated."

I'll second that. They can start with the bunch of lids in the Houston area who intentionally fire up 1khz away from you and tell you to leave because they have been there for 35 years.
