    KJ6FYX Daniel Rice tracked a jamming signal on the KG6YPA 146.235mhz Amateur Radio Repeater to the residence of WA6RXZ Henry Stange of Temecula, Ca. Henry Stange has had a history with this repeater, a verbal life-time ban was issued by the repeater owner in January of 2011. After a month of investigation we had narrowed down who we had thought the individual was. After all the malicious and intentional interference (by the same voice) to the KG6YPA 146.235mhz repeater, signals were finally located. The following link to YouTube shows the transmitter hunt live.

    Two thumbs up for getting the goods on this idiot. The usual attitude of these kind of people is "I'm too smart for them. They'll never catch me."
    Famous last words. Bye bye Henry, a ham radio operator is not for what you are.
    Ya know, my granny used to say that it takes one to know one. All of the epithetical nonsense you were spewing came back to roost, and it came back in a lot faster hurry than you ever thought that it would.
    Well, as Forrest Gump said, "Stupid is as stupid does." There's some kind of wisdom in that little phrase, isn't there, Bubba?
    Bye Henry, I hope that the evidence you generated comes back to haunt you.

    1. Does WA6RXZ get time for rebuttal if he chooses?

    2. Would the video be admissable as evidence in court?

    1. What's to rebut? I suppose he could present a video of him asleep in his bed.

    2. Depends on the court and what the charge is.

    Certainly there is a lot of testimony and circumstantial evidence here. I suppose it could be someone else, but highly unlikely.

    Should be enough to get a letter of inquiry from the FCC and bannation from the repeater.

    The only thing that might make the video evidence even more irrefutable would be to show the S-meter and a directional antenna sweeping and pointing at the signal source. You'd have to have an RF gain control or an attenuator, though.

    Back when I was messing with CB stuff we had a similar idiot. We got tired of it one night and went looking. He just locked down the mic and left it next to the stereo. When we pulled up in front of the house we heard someone scream "Oh S$#T", heard the screen door slam, and then the signal disappeared. Never had a problem again.

    Had a look at WA6RXZ's page on QRZ. If I had a wife as nice as the one in the photo there, I don't think I would have time to be jamming a repeater.

    It's stupid to be jaming in the first place.
    You would think that behavior would be over by the age of eleven.
    I guess not.

    I wouldn't paint all hams with such a broad brush.
    There are many good hams that make it all worthwhile.

    Since making the video public he has since resorted to "touch-tone jamming" and very rarely uses his usual jamming voice as heard in the video. Since I took the video I have purchased one of K0OV's 4mhz offset attenuator specifically made for t-hunting and installed it on my 3-element tape measure yagi I built using the design by WB2HOL. The good thing is I live fairly close to this parasite jammer. It only takes me about 15 minutes drive time to position my vehicle and tape measure yagi within a couple hundred yards of his residence (with video camera in hand).

    On my next mission (as I like to call them), I will make sure to have not only my tape measure yagi w/attenuator but also a UHF hand-held radio tuned to the UHF 3rd harmonic frequency for the repeaters input frequency. Get a full-scale signal there and he is FOR SURE within a couple hundred yards. The FCC isn't stupid, they know that too. Looking at this guy's continuous jamming history with this new repeater (a few months now), it's only a matter of time before the FCC and I nail him with even better evidence than I already have. Stay tuned! You may even hear the outcome on Newsline! This guy is going down.

    Hey! there's nothing wrong with this guy that a good pair of wire-cutters placed around his antenna line or a pin shoved into the coax at the appropriate place wouldn't cure. :D
    Hmm, that would be too good for him. :p
    How about a log chain wrapped around his tower attached to a good heavy duty truck? :confused:
    One good tug on that and I just betcha that he'd be off the air for a while. :eek:
    Sympathy for this dead head? Nah. He just needs a couple of good old boys to pay him a visit and tell him about the way things are going to be after their visit. Personally, I have no use for this kind of living idiot with a radio. He's not a ham, he's a p*** in the a** with a license. :(
