FCC Announces Enforcement Actions for January-March 2013:

In the first quarter of 2013 (January-March), the FCC issued 23 enforcement actions. These enforcement actions are in addition to the $10,000 fine issued to Jared A. Bruegman, ex-KC0IQN, of Bolivar, Missouri, and the $25,000 fine issued to Terry L. VanVolkenburg, KC5RF, of Cocoa, Florida, as previously reported.

This past quarter, the FCC sent Warning Letters to 10 individuals regarding unlicensed transmissions, interference and repeater-related infractions. In addition, the FCC sent Warning Letters to four commercial entities or individuals that had conducted commercial operation on the amateur bands. The FCC also sent one letter to a power company, as well as eight letters addressing RFI complaints regarding interference from various electronic devices, including plasma television sets, electric fence chargers and grow light ballasts.

My hat's off to Ms. Smith and the FCC's Enforcement folks. They are definitely hunting for knuckleheads and getting good results.

Hopefully people get the message and start behaving!
