You fellows don't know one half of it. Try listening 3.789 /3.795 every night at about 22:00z and listen to the 3 Italians ruining the dx portion of the band. All the more worrying is that the decent Italian operators don't seem to want to do anything about it.
How about "Socially Unacceptable Language" for starters?
If the mush-for-brains types want to act like they live on an island apart from society, then there are plenty in the Caribbean and South Pacific that await them. But I wonder how long they would get away with it in those places.
Lawyers here want people to think that "getting your day in court" equates to years waiting for the law to act and by this getting away with it and pretending that if it is important, why is it taking so long to get noticed, then when they do go to court, they should see no mercy. Let all those years of going against the law, that pretending that it hasn't been defined in the law, come to bite them in the seat of the pants.
The majority of hams do what is right and let the law be their guide. When law-abiding hams are bothered by those who are not and point out what the law says, all they have is a "if you don't like my driving, stay off the sidewalk" attitude as if this negates all laws and societal tradition and this apples equally in the Amateur Radio Society.
We have hams who proudly say that their children, some who are teenagers and even pre-teens, are getting into ham radio but do they allow their children to participate in the kind of activity and use the language heard on 14.313 and 7200??? When showing off Ham Radio to the local school, why is is necessary to make sure the dial is greased in readiness for some animated spinning when some fool thinks communication means using words that have nothing to do with or add to communication? Does barroom talk trump the language we want to hear in schools and churches?
Ham radio should not be a dumping ground for sgummy lowlifes but if we say nothing to the FCC/ARRL and just "spin the dial," we are turning a blind eye to what hurts the hobby most. Notice too that it is them that must [try] to defend what they do, not traditional amateur society.
case law is the law plain and simple, when the COURTS tell the FCC they can not do something then the FCC can not do it. what part of that do you not understand, its quite simple. FCC went after someone in 1981 over language, it went to fed court and the court ruled against the FCC, thus making "bad language" rule null.
did you read N6BHU vs FCC 1981? where the courts ruled FCC can't go after anyone over "bad language"?
Try this...Would you use it in the presence of your mother, an eight year old, a priest or minister, or in a job interview?
Other than just being argumentative, does that test pretty well set it out? It works for me.
Too bad they can't send the dirtbag to federal prison for 5 years along with the fine.
U haven't heard OBSCENITY till U tuned into 435!! There's this guy named JACK on there who would make the SALTIEST old sailor blush bright red!!!
MUSIC??? lotsa music on 435!! The FCC doesn't care!
435 is IMMUNE to FCC RULES!!
Then criminal activity is separately manifest.
Dont even think of it. Not our job.
As an SWL since the 1950s and a licensed Ham since 1977, I've never understood why people use the airwaves to lessen the enjoyment of others. It is the lowest form of selfishness and self-centered depravity, especially when the offender gets some sort of weird enjoyment out of spoiling things for others. Thanks to the Commission for finally acting on this guy, and to quote Gomer Pyle, "Shame on you. Shame, shame, shame!!"
