FCC Fines 2 Amateur Radio Operators for Interference (7/23/14)
Wednesday, July 23, 2014 | Comments

The FCC proposed fines against two amateur radio station operations for causing interference to other amateur radio operators.

The FCC proposed a $22,000 penalty against Michael Guernsey in Michigan for causing interference to other amateur radio operators and failing to provide station identification. The commission said Guernsey has been repeatedly warned in writing by the Enforcement Bureau about causing interference to other amateur radio operators. “The history of noncompliance, combined with Mr. Guernsey’s deliberate disregard for commission authority, warrants a significantly increased penalty,” the order said.

The commission also proposed an $11,500 penalty against Brian Crow of Pennsylvania for causing intentional interference to licensed radio operations and failing to transmit his assigned call sign in the amateur radio service.

The Guernsey order is here.

Crow’s order is here.
