Tuesday, March 05, 2019 | Comments

The FCC notified a man from Uniontown, Pennsylvania of alleged unlicensed operation and harmful interference of a frequency used for fire communications in the area.

The FCC’s Enforcement Bureau received a complaint from the Fayette County Emergency Management Association concerning harmful interference and unauthorized transmission on the 155.190 frequency, which is used for fire communications in Uniontown.

Investigating agents determined that Jonathan Campbell was the source of the unauthorized transmission and harmful interference. According to the FCC’s notice, Campbell admitted to operating a Baofeng UV-5R VHF/UHF two-way radio on the frequency.

The commission’s records show that no license was issued for Campbell’s operation on the public-safety frequency in Uniontown.

Campbell has 10 days to respond to the FCC’s notice. Find the full notice here.
