Interesting story about how the guys are still hounding
K1MAN after all these years, regardless of which side one takes
on the issue. (Only ARRL can "broadcast" I guess!)
On a more serious note though... SInce they are zapping him for
starting up on top of a QSO, I wonder if FCC will go after the
darlings of ARRL: the Unattended robot WINLINK Pactor II and
Pactor II stations that do he SAME THING multiple times every day
on 40m and 20m?
Somehow I doubt it. Same for W1AW sometimes. Although THAT
is far more predicatbvel and not aproblem like the WINLINK

ENFORCEMENT: ONE LAST CHANCE FOR K1MAN
The FCC appears to be giving Glenn Baxter, K1MAN, one final
strictly conform to the agency's Part 97 rules. This, before taking
action against the Belgrade Lakes, Maine ham. The FCC's Daryl
Duckworth, NN0W, explains:
Duckworth: "A warning letter went to Glenn Baxter, K1MAN, of
Lakes, Maine. Back in April of this year the Commission notified
of two areas of operation that would lead to enforcement action and
or designation for a hearing to determine his qualifications to
a licensee. This is regarding deliberate interference to ongoing
communications and using the station for pecuniary interest.
Copies of the warning notice were also went to the United States
Attorney in the United States Department of Justice, District of
This is Daryl Duckworth, NN0W, reporting."
In the September 15th Warning Notice the FCC's Riley
tells Baxter that the Commission has received approximately a
complaints that K1MAN Amateur Radio transmissions started on
ongoing communications of individual operators, as well as on top
ongoing communications of the Salvation Army Team Emergency
Hollingsworth says that this is a net that has been handling health
and welfare traffic for this season's hurricane victims.
As to the pecuniary interest allegation, the FCC says that this is
because Baxter's website lists a bulletin service transmission
schedule and items for sale on the same pages. The FCC says
is in violation of Sections 97.113(a)(2)and (3) of its rules.
Hollingsworth ends the letter by saying that failure to correct the
violations will subject Baxter to enforcement action against his
station and operator licenses. Baxter was given twenty days from
date the warning notice was issued to resoind. (FCC, RAIN)
