    It took time, but the F.C.C. finaly took some action. It may not be enough, but it is a start. LETS SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN THE FUTURE:)

    I never had the "pleasure" of hearing one of his "broadcasts", but from everything I have read and heard, it sounds like we rid ourselves of just one more true "lid". Now, how many more are still out there?

    It's the end of an era. Who would have ever believed it. No more Night Call-In programs from K1MAN. Now, I'll have to start listening to the Nuts on the broadcast band.

    Well as Baxters buddy Walter Cronkite used to say:

    Guilty as charged Glenn, and thats the way it is......

    Its about time they did something. Now if they can just start clamping down on the hundreds of other idiots on the airwaves who dead key on nets, use profanity, and act like children.

    so what happens now? All I found in the "order" was that the DOJ wil get involved if he doesn't pay. His license renewal wa sset aside but is his license officially terminated?

    My instinct tells me that it ain't over till it's over.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see him fight this, refuse to pay, and keep transmitting anyway.

    In any event, this all serves to give him the attention that he's been seeking, for better or for worse.

    Still, it's nice to see some serious pressure for a change.

    You're right, Fred, and here is his "clipped" latest.  (If you don't want it, feel free to axe it.  I'll understand [​IMG] )

    The "Order" is attached below.   What Now?

    1.  The FCC has declined to provide a requested hearing, and the Fifth
    Amendment to the United States Constitution requires a hearing and due
    process of law before they can collect a dime much less the "ORDERED"
    "fine" of $21,000.   Even a traffic ticket gets a hearing, right?

    2.  Therefore, the next step for the FCC, by statute, is to now sue
    K1MAN for the claimed $21,000 in Federal District Court in Bangor,
    Maine where K1MAN would demand a trial by jury (trial de novo),
    subpoena witnesses (Hollingsworth, Boston Office Engineers, hams,
    etc.), file motions, etc.  The FCC can't even bring such a suit, of
    course, because the minimum claim in Federal District Court is
    $50,000.

    3.  By statute, unresolved forfeiture matters such as above cannot be
    used in any other FCC proceeding such as K1MAN's pending renewal
    application.

    4.  By statute, K1MAN can and will continue to operate until the
    renewal application is finally decided including all appeals to the
    D.C. Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Bottom line is that the FCC is blowing phony legal smoke leading to
    Hollingsworth's 2006 Dayton "Special Achievement Award" which is not
    too bad for a guy who was sick on the day they taught law at law
    school.   Wake Forest Law School should refund all of his hard earned
    money!   Good luck in the contest!

    You may wonder how the ARRL uses your $39, but there is no question as to how K1MAN will be spending all that money you sent him to join the American Amateur Radio Association!

    No. Didn't send money to K1MAN, didn't send money to the ARRL. I'd rather see my money go into clubs that will use it than some lobbyist or lawyer's pocket.
