Hi Ken,
Actually I believe that Spike's comments were the best part
of this Tempest in a Teapot. Life is a little short to lack a sense
of humor.

Let's see, we have guys who make up phony radio clubs to get special vanity
calls.  We have those who do tricks with addresses to get a special vanity
call.  Now we have guys with CB handles assessing the situation.  

Dr. Buffoon-ick, go P1SS up a R0PE.  There's a couple calls you missed.

Thank God there's a contest this weekend to purge this looniness from our

I am young and don't want to cause any social unrest amongst my elders
but allow me as young 16 year old to say something. This is not a flame
to anyone at all nor do beleive in any one persone more than another. I
just want to have an end to flamming as it is ridiculous. If you have to
feel the urge to flame, flame in public although I don't beleive in any
flaming at all. As someone said a long time ago and I think you know who
said it "Can't we all just get along?" Let's set and lead by example to
our youngsters who follow our every move; don't lead by aggression. All
it does is make someone else mad at you and they'll remeber you even in
the next contest. Don't you want his points? So please, let's act like
the hams I know you guys are. Again, I am directing this at those who
flame but I will not say their name. For the record, I don't know whoose
right, Jim or Bob nor do I care. I just like to see everyone treat other
people with respect. 

Remember the golden rule "act to others as you would like to have others
act unto you." Sound familiar. I am not trying to start a riot, just
asking for some common decency. Let's rise above all this guys. Good luck
to everyone in the 160 test this weekemd; I won't be in it because I
don't have an antenna for that band yet. Take care.

Why does the FCC have the resources for this and not all the malicious =
interfernce and other downright illegal operating practices (foul =
language, etc.) occurring on the bands these days?
Sounds like the police who go after the speeder who's 5MPH over the =
limit and ignore those who are 20 over 'cause the former are easier and =
safer to catch!  73, Bob AA0CY

So what is the problem,  Bob.  Sam, KH6AFS,  owns the property
on Ross up there,  visits it regularly and has received the club
license via the US Postal System.  Sounds as if all is just fine to
me,  if the above is the only possible problem with the club
license of which KH6B is the trustee.

Hope you are quite pleased with your actions about this issue.

Jim KH7M,

For several years while working in Washington I was quite active with 
the FCC. Many of the FCC functions are contracted out due to budget 
constraints and manpower limitations.

My only part in the questioning was to present to an aquaintance the 
comments of KL7HF and ask his opinion. His opinion was to forward it 
to the Enforcement Division where it was not rejected but assigned to 
a lawyer to be reviewed.

If you are so very disturbed that KL7HF could question the matter 
than why not ask him for a copy of his comments to the FCC. He has 
voiced the complaint, NOT ME.

He does have very interesting information including the resident of 
the address listed which is not an amateur radio operator. Just as 
you are unhappy of it being questioned, so is he on what he views as 
an abuse of the Vanity process.

Get the fcats directly from him at seay at alaska.net
