FCC Proposes Substantial Fine for Unlicensed Amateur Operation, False Police Call — 3 Comments

  1. The article states that he was also taken “for possessing radios capable of operating on NYPD frequencies, in violation of state law”. If this is true then this would probably make all Baofeng and other Chinese radios illegal. I thought it is only illegal to operate on those frequencies, not to own equipment capable of operating on them.

    • Its one of those things when they say “Let’s hit him with everything we got then let the court decide.” If the case is possession instead of operating on frequencies then the Fed. should go after the sellers (dealers) before coming down on the buyer (user).

  2. Its not illegal if you have a Ham License to own these radios that can transmit on NYPD but it is illegal if you are stopped asked to see the radio and it does transmit on NYPD system or FDNY’s System.
    Its not illegal to listen to Police.
