The F.C.C. is a government agency. One must have standards before they can loosen them.

Here's an idea - hams policing their own! Track down the lids and "freebanders" (DF ing, etc.), give them ONE warning, then if the bad behavior continues, sneak in at night and stick a straight pin through their coax cable... Wink

Really?

Let's think what that entails.....

First, you'd need to figure out exactly who the bad apple is. That means DFing the person while they are on the air, to make sure you've got the right person. (People can falsely ID, not ID at all, use recordings of other people's voices, etc.).

Second, you'd have to deliver the warning. How would you do that, exactly? Face to face? By US mail? Drop something on their doorstep or in their mailbox?

Third.....the pin-through-the-coax thing involves trespassing and vandalism. What if the bad apple has a dog? Or a security camera? Or a gun? You might find yourself in DEEP trouble....

Fourth.....what if you blame the wrong person?

Think about it. It's 2017......

Heir Kraus, the FCC is like the Third Reich. We know the Third Reich was totally defeated in WWII. So it is as the FCC has been neutralized. We now need the Fourth Reich that is reborn from the ashes. The new FCC will be TAFCC (The Armed Federal Communications Commission) They have the authority to kick down perpetrator's doors and seize equipment and to sanction the inhabitants of the building they have entered. I feel in 5 years of this regulatory method, most of the miscreants will be removed from amateur service and we can return to civil operations. This is a standard I could support and adhere to.

We tend to feed the misfits.  That's why they become so fat.  Years ago there was a Polish guy that owned a local FM station.  At 6PM every night he played an hour of polka music.  When he got complainers he told them that their radio had two knobs--ON/OFF and the tuner knob.  His suggestion was to use either one until 7PM.

What happened Art? To many bullies take your lunch money when you were in grade school? And now you just "accept" this type of behavior in all walks of life? I'd rather take an ass whippin' or vice a versa. That's what's so sad about this country today, people just acquiesce to all of the deviants and their bad behavior. I say poke them in the eye with a sharp stick.

XAX, that will not change anything unless a majority of people start thinking like you.  With the overabundance of liberals around, that is not gonna happen.

Liberals always spoil the party, don't they? We do agree on this. Maybe we conservatives need to become the majority? 73

You've GOT to be kidding.  And who do you think the cop will take to jail, OM?  

99% of people anywhere, including a judge, won't care about you acting on your sanctimony.

Let me get this straight.....

What you're saying is that if someone behaves badly on the amateur bands, and doesn't respond to others telling them to change their ways, that YOU would trespass on their property and commit vandalism.

What will you do if arrested for trespass and vandalism?

What will you do if the property owner "stands his ground" with a firearm or other weapon?

It's not about "liberals" or "conservatives". It's about the LAW.

James, it is about conservatives and liberals! Conservatives obey the law, and liberals do not! Liberals think the law does not apply to them.

Piercing or cutting the offenders coax is known as the 'Chicago fix'.
