    That's a bit scary...

    The one thing that bothers me is, it's illegal to talk to an unlicensed station.

    One doesn't have to actually "talk to" a station for threats to be made!

    That's true however the article said someone had talked to him over the air.

    Not to mention an (*), as is anyone who talks to an unlicensed operator. As amateurs, we should assume that any kind of on-air response to an improperly identifying signal is positive reinforcement for a Part 97 violation.

    Maybe, the white noise will go away? Great article.

    The article says they "met" with Watkins and "visited" him, clearly face-to-face encounters, in January and he launched his over-the-air threats after that. I don't see that article saying that anyone other than the perp did anything over the air.

    Contact over the air wasn't mentioned in the link, but it was specified in the thread Glenn mentioned. It was a boastful troll cammouflaged as a question, which is why the thread was closed.
