Thanks to reporter David Hall for this story. Apparently, the FCC is getting serious about malicious interference to electronic equipment and licensed users of the rf spectrum.  This time, the culprit is a two-time offender using a citizen’s band transmitter.  According the FCC, Tommie Slater was fined $14,000 for interfering with a neighbor’s "home electronic equipment."  Slater refused to have his station inspected by FCC personnel.  Slater was also caught doing the same thing back in 2004, when he was cited "for using a  non-certified transmitter during restricted hours the commission had imposed following interference complaints."  Slater has 30 days to respond to the FCC inquiry.  Some people never seem to learn.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
