    Hey FCC, why don't you spend some time listening to 14.275, and stop wasting ours......

    So what's the problem???

    Other than the occassional glitch now and then, does the much-revered Free Market not continue to serve us well???

    Maybe President Obama will get some people on the Commission who actually do their job, instead of acting like employees of the corporations they supposedly regulate.

    sell on

    I think the FCC can cram it. They cannot regulate the person to person sales of these items but they can regulate the retail sale thats it.

    Sounds to me like he has more of a problem with illegal operations on the 10.5 and 11.5 (and down) meter bands, some of which is engaged in by licensed hams who ought to know better.

    How's your RCI-2970 work out during Navy MARS operations? I heard they were pretty drift-prone.

    You're comparing apples to oranges with the MARS analogy, by the way. The vast majority of so-called "MARS-modded" rigs will NEVER see so much as one check-in to a valid MARS net.

    Further, they should be going after the users of such equipment, not the sellers. Chop away at the market by levying stiff fines and/or imposing jail time then the demand problem will take care of itself.

    Let's not.

    Let's encourage the Commission to prosecute egregious violations, and also to let us continue buying the occasional Mobat, Harris, SEA and military surplus rig that might cover some forbidden frequency.

    Other "Illegal" radios??

    OK then, we better outlaw the Kenwood ts-50S, Yeasu FT-101E, Ten-Tec gear, and a HOST of other ham rigs. Most of these and others are very EASY to modify to use on the "Freeband", usually by simply cutting a wire or removing a simple well marked component on the circuit board.

    The F.C.C needs to get up off thier DEAD A## and go find the folks that are operating these rigs in an illegal manor, not simply try to ban the sale of certain items to curb illegal activity.

    This is about as stupid an idea as Gun Conrtol in which only criminals will have guns if there is a general ban on sale and ownership of guns.
