I, too, remember the account. It was, I believe in the ARRL Letter. Don't know what the outcome was. If it reached a Federal Court, I would think the conviction would be overturned........................ In any case, we hams need to be vigilant. We must not roll over and play dead or prove ourselves to be compliant sheep. I am pursuing this despite those who exhibit their "one upmanship" or funny remarks. One pile of excrement heaped upon us will result in the vultures returning to poop on our heads again and again & we won't have an amateur radio service/hobby at all. If the states get away with this & its not challenged, they'll come up with more restrictions.
