FCC Fines Amateur Radio Licensee $17,000 for Intentional Interference
Friday, October 04, 2019 | Comments

The FCC proposed a $17,000 penalty against Harold Guretzky, an amateur radio licensee, for causing intentional interference on amateur radio frequencies.

Because amateur radio frequencies are shared, amateur radio licensees may not monopolize any frequency for their exclusive use. The FCC said the Enforcement Bureau previously warned Guretsky in writing regarding deliberate interference, but he continued interfering with other amateur radio licensees’ radio communications.

“Given his history as a repeat offender, this violation warrants a significant penalty,” the notice of apparent liability for forfeiture said.

The full notice is here.
