I don't think it is a matter of going over Powell's head. It is a matter of RH asserting himself to the obvious problem instead of shadowboxing with reality. He acknowledges it exists yet does nothing, not one thing, about it? Not a "can-do" attitude for someone who claims he loves amateur radio! If he was put in charge of Enforcement, he can & should make the call to redirect efforts toward nailing a few HIGH-PROFILE freebanders. It is not like they are hiding out of fear! I don't buy into the budget argument, it is priorities & their assignment. We already pay them all a hefty salary, just what do they do for it? I think Mr. Powell is the key to forcing redirected enforcement actions out of RH. I understand that Mr. Powell is very assertive in his management of the tasks at the FCC. Maybe burning a CD of some offenders & mailing it to Powell with instructions to play it in his car on the way home from the office might be the necessary incentive to force RH to do his damn job the following morning! Some carpet burns are in order here! If we keep the pressure on, maybe the Field Agents can stop monitoring 2M repeaters & start DF-ing 10M signals with all that new high$$$ DF gear they have. They can start by thowing a dart at a map of the US blindfolded. They are sure to find many more offenders there than in the callbook! I live in a very rural place & I can find 50 offenders as it is hunting season here in the woods. Bambi could die of spurious out-of-band emissions much quicker than a fatal gunshot! There is just no excuse for continued grandstanding about amateur enforcement without taking amateur band action against the unlicensed masses! Otherwise, why have a license? Just to get QSL cards?
