    “ Commission no longer accepts forfeiture payments by check or money order. ”

    With the new volunteer monitor program, I think 7.200 is next. We just need a bunch of these to set an example.

    I wonder how long this took to get to a "Fine"? I have heard of it taking years to get the FCC moving on a problem operator.

    Most old timers I know agree, FCC response started to get slow when we started getting "FREE" licenses.. Less money for the FED, less service for the Ham.. At least it appears that way to me... Just thinking out loud...

    73, and happy Friday to all,

    I am not surprised, 12 to 24 months sounds about right...

    You're kidding right??? They (FCC) haven't resolved the 3840 Khz situation yet, the guy they fined $25,000 is still on the air every night...
