ARLB028 FCC Drops Amateur Radio Enforcement Line

The FCC has discontinued its Amateur Enforcement Line (202-418-1184)
for Amateur Radio complaints and now requests amateur-related
complaints be sent either via e-mail to fccham@fcc.gov or by mail.

The FCC instituted the telephone service last fall when it beefed up
amateur enforcement under the direction of Riley Hollingsworth,
K4ZDH. However, the FCC never intended to maintain the telephone
service permanently.

Complaints sent via the US Postal Service go to: Compliance and
Information Bureau ATTN: Amateur Radio Complaints, 1270 Fairfield
Rd, Gettysburg, PA 17325.

The FCC said this week that complaints already filed on the
telephone service will be acted upon, and anyone who has left a
message will receive a return call from Commission staff.
