Many amateur radio operators avoid 14.313 MHz in the 20 meter amateur radio band because of the violations contained in this article.  The FCC Enforcement Bureau has levied fines totalling $33,500 against Michael Guernsey (KZ8O) and Brian Crow (K3VR) for malicious interference and failure to identify their stations.  Such behavior is unnecessary, demeans the amateur radio service, illegal, and  devoid of common sense.  Their licenses should be revoked, their equipment seized, and heavy penalties assessed. When I run into such antics, I avoid these  sociopaths by just turning the dial.  Perhaps the next time I hear similar acts of stupidity, I’ll record the infraction and send a copy to the FCC.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
