Well, now that Glenn has received his forfeiture order and apparently ignored it, I guess the ball is in the FCC's court. Anyone heard Glenn on the air? I can't hear him with prevailing skip conditions.
I received an email from a QRZ reader who explained to me that (in his opinion) Baxter's co-host, "VE7KFM is being jammed because of his obnoxious anti-American sentiments, his obscenities, and his QRM to legitimate communications in progress."
By the way, Todd's "LOLICON" site is down. For those of you just checking in, Todd boasted that he hosted a site featuring cartoons of children in sexual situations, and now his site has dropped off ( been yanked off ? ) the net. Maybe Todd will check in to give us the other half of the story...
Maybe Ole Toddxter is just busy getting ready for the filming of his new movie. It could be the next "Brokeback"......
The ARRL has been doing the same thing with low quality commercial programs on the amateur radio bands. I think more stations should enter the legal ham broadcast aspect of the hobby. It should be allowed or banned, none or anyone who can put together a good quality ham show and broadcast it possibly from a mountain top for best coverage...
Wrong on both counts. Not low quality, and not commercial. Suggest a move back to reality.
And broadcasting is still illegal.
Has there been any update as to what the FCC is doing about Baxter?
I've heard nothing since the forfeiture order came out Fred.
As far as I know:
1. The FCC has yet to grant or deny his license renewal application and the application remains set-aside.
2. The FCC may refer his fine to the Department of Justice for a trial in Maine District Court where the DoJ would try to win a judgement to collect the cash or an equivalent amount in property, plus the costs of the collection.
3. I haven't heard a Baxter Bulletin on the air in quite awhile; he stopped sending AARA/IARN SPAM some time ago; and I haven't seen an update on his web page since April 24th.
4. When the FCC turned up the heat in 1999, Baxter took two years off from his "bulletin schedule." When the going gets tough, the tough get going - somewhere else - off the air. He said he was busy "teaching" last time he left the air for an extended period of time. Perhaps Clarence Darrow is busy selling smoke detectors to pay for his legal defense.
That's all folks!
Actually the Monetary forfeiture is one of the FCC's way of legally with out an attorney to bring this on, also in the order Baxter would have an appeal of the fine but the FCC response would be to produce all tax returns of X amt. of years, he has to prove financial hardship like hes only collecting money on a street corner selling newspapers, and pencils. or hes on the Public Wealfare system and his Unemployment Benefits ran out opf course his local JOB motovation office would probably poke him along to get a job.
or he can put all of his radio gear on Ebay and go by a fictious name like Barney Nobody.
I don't see that as a possibility, NO license Yes maybe he can turn his house into a musem and charge a fee like $14.00 ( $14.95 if you are one of those of his AARA or what ever it was..) I would say NOONE in their right mind would even ask for his call as a vanity call either.
Probably the FCC would not reissue it.
was Glen at Dayton?
They could take his callsign and auction it off, proceeds to go towards the $21k debt also......
