    What is this all about?
    I understand failure to identify, but what is Nationwide Rule on Compliance for 3.819MHz and 3.953MHz ?

    From a ARRL news letter about the Volunteer Monitor (VM) Program which is a joint initiative between ARRL and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to enhance compliance in the Amateur Radio Service. This is the VM Program Report for August 2021.
    http://www.arrl.org/news/august-2021-volunteer-monitor-program-report

    • Licensees in Prineville, Winston, Silver Lake, and Roseburg, Oregon; Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Houston, Texas, were sent Advisory Notices concerning failure to identify, as required by Section 97.119(a) of the FCC Amateur Radio Service, pursuant to a nationwide rule compliance review of operations on 3.819 MHz and 3.953 MHz.

    Never heard of it. Also, in the same report, a Texas amateur was threatened with revocation or modification and removal of voice privileges... by ARRL? I thought that was an FCC determination, after an FCC investigation, following an opportunity to be heard (at least) or a hearing? The ARRLs increased role in publication and authority is completely missing in my copy of the MOU.

    (iii) The functions of individuals recruited and trained under this subparagraph shall be limited to

    (I) the detection of improper amateur radio transmissions;

    (II) the conveyance to Commission personnel of information which is
    essential to the enforcement of this Act (or regulations prescribed by the
    Commission under this Act) relating to the amateur radio service; and

    (III) issuing advisory notices, under the general direction of the Commission,
    to persons who apparently have violated any provision of this Act (or regulations
    prescribed by the Commission under this Act) relating to the amateur radio
    service.

    Nothing in this clause shall be construed to grant individuals recruited and trained under
    this subparagraph any authority to issue sanctions to violators or to take any enforcement
    action other than any action which the Commission may prescribe by rule"

    Two independent phrases describing related activities separated by a comma:

    “Licensees in…… we’re sent Advisory Notices,

    pursuant to a review of operations on two specific frequencies.

    It was a nationwide review of rule compliance, not a review of nationwide rule on compliance.

    Licensees

    in Prineville, Winston, Silver Lake, and Roseburg, Oregon; (4 in Oregon)

    Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Houston, Texas (1 in South Dakota) (1 in Texas)

    on 3.819MHz and 3.953MHz (two freqs)

    pursuant to a nationwide rule compliance review of operations...

    I'd guess it means ARRL decided to look at 3819 and 3953 rule compliance across the entire country.

    Ahhh.... concerning failure to identify, as required by Section 97.119(a)

    And this:

    A licensee in New Caney, Texas, was sent a final notice that his case was being referred to the FCC for license revocation or deletion of voice privileges from his license.

    Yeah, methinks that message got garbled in K0UO's receiver. :D:D:D

    At the risk of thread drift, here's the question I have. I read the VM report, and bullet point 1 says this:

    "...operation on frequencies that were set aside for Haiti earthquake emergency communications by the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) Region 2 Emergency Coordinator."
    My question, how would anyone know that the R2EC had "set aside" those frequencies? Where is that information published, and how would Joe Hamm know?
