Until the full Commission denies his appeal of the ALJ decision, an appeal he has until about August 9, 2018 to file.

Those guys are mental.  Think of some old fat, smelly curmudgeon, weird as hell, who has nothing in his life except interfering with other stations.

Human debris.

Means little at this point.  You don’t need a ticket to operate illegally. None of this will stop this guy.

Have you checked the FCC enforcement actions lately, there seems to be a BIG increase in citing unlicensed operations .

The only thing that will stop this guy is if he gets some balls and starts operating on military frequencies.

Unlicensed FM operators, particularly out of South Florida, yes.

Unlicensed amateur operators? No.

Not sure of all the processes involved, but why doesn't the FCC just cancel his license and move on...I read this stuff and never come away with a real conclusion, only that he continues to operate on an expired license evidently, that the Fed don't intend on renewing....so...what is the end result?  Cancel it...move on....

The FCC has always seemed really lax in these cases. They level a fine then the jammer pleads poverty and pays a ridiculously small sum while admitting that he won't stop jamming; really happened once that I know of!

This is a really introvert hobby. Hams don't take care of stuff themselves. Imagine a guy that disrupted a softball game all season with loud music, cursing and running onto the field, defying court orders and law enforcement in the process. That b^&ch would get dealt with by both teams and their bats if necessary. This hobby has been plagued by jammers, rude idiots, language, taxi dispatchers in Tijuana, etc forever and hams just whine about the FCC.

Once upon a time, that's pretty much what happened.

In more recent years, though, it's become quite apparent that there are those who, for whatever reason, will exploit any available procedure to extend these decisions and hearings almost indefinitely.  Rules and procedures that were clearly intended to make sure that someone's rights to a hearing and to appeal decisions not be infringed upon have been exploited.

The impression one gets is that in some cases, it becomes a game between the accused and the federal agency; the goal is not to win, but to drag it on for as long as possible. 

And keep in mind, it's only the most egregious situations that you hear about.

^^^^This.  Let the loser hire his own attorney to battle the government.  Costs alone will drain him of the cash in the mattress in his trailer.
