|I have wondered why in just about every QST issue, there are 1 or 2 'FCC News' stories where hams get busted and big fines for illegal operation on the ham bands.
Usually it is someone who is bothering some repeaters or some operation like that.
What I don't understand is - here in Oregon - if you listen on 3840 at night you hear every cuss word imaginable. They drop the 'F' bomb like it is nothing.
I am no prude, but good grief, you mean to tell me the FCC can't do anything about that???
I just don't understand.
Seems like the FCC spends a lot of time monitoring repeaters and kinda forgot about the rest of the bands. 73
