In case you are wondering how you can get fined by the FCC, here’s the sequence of events that resulted in a $10,000 fine for this person:
- Get a Technician License and then let it expire.
- Repeatedly transmit on 14.312 MHz, interfering with licensed radio amateurs.
- Have FCC agents track the signal to your house
- When the FCC agents enter your house to inspect your radio station, leave the transmitter sitting on 14.311 MHz.
- Tell the FCC agents that you will remove the microphone from the transmitter and only use it as a receiver.
Hmmm, why does 14.312 MHz sound like a familiar frequency?
