I see posted on the ARRL website a blurb that Glenn Baxter K1MAN is finally going to be properly dealt with by the FCC re: the $21,000 fine the idiot was supposed to pay in liability.

Hope this a start in the final chapter in radio of this pitiful little putty head!

No love lost for someone who labeled me and probably some of you as nazi's on his cheesy looking website which was later shutdown. But it was then later labeled as NERD when he got it restarted. I was thrown on there under my old callsign especially when I called him out on his stupidity.

Of course KFM has also done the same thing on his little joke of a webspace but decides to throw stuff out like a childish goof. That's nowhere near what path MAN has decided to go down labeling some of us as nazi's.

Not much longer guys!

I don't like Baxter's bullshit anymore than the next guy. I don't understand why the ARRL isn't fined for starting bulletins on top of qsos already in progress. W1AW has no more right to an exclusive frequency for broadcasts that Baxter does. W1AW should be required to ask if the frequency is in use like the rest of us are.

I don't see the need for ARRL bulletins at all. The code practice broadcasts serve some minimal purpose, though that too can be considered pass in the current licensing rgime. That said, I believe officialdom sees as a justifiable rationale that the ARRL bulletins provide a viable service to the amateur "community," and this underlying principle has put them in a special category. Face it, the ARRL has become an NGO with pseudo-official status that makes is fairly "untouchable" in ordinary terms.
The expansion of EmComm rationales and the breathless press over amateur participation in various disaster scenarios has further added to the Teflon coat they have worn now for decades.

Rudy ..... you're not that far from the truth ..... a random listening to the mighty K1MAN "bulletin" service on 14.275 has Baxter playing a 5 year old recording of a telephone conversation between Karol Madera and himself on the badness of everything Riley Hollingsworth.....this recording is playing itself continously over..... and over .....and over....

so have you asked W1AW about this ... or complained to the FCC about it?I asked Riley Hollingsworth about it at the FCC forum at a mid 90's hamvention. The ARRL visible hotshots were miffed. His careful response was something to the effect "I am not aware of this taking place, or I have not heard this". "You are welcome to file a complaint" blah, blah blah. I then rephrased my question to "Does W1AW have exclusive rights to a frequency for one way broadcasts? I have personally heard them deliberately start broadcasting on qsos in progress." He replied "Of course not"
One of the ARRL pantloads was given the microphone, he stated since W1AW bulletins are an important public service, blah, blah, blah. The schedule is published , blah, blah, blah We have always done this.....funny. I was given very dirty looks by the majority of the people in the room. I thought it was the right question for the right time. The ARRL rep basically stated it's them, they can do it, the skeds are published. Dont have a qso on those frequencies during these times.You would be causing deliberate interference.

BTW, the only W1AW one way broadcasts I heard were CW. There were qsos in progress on the freq. each time.

Since I live within 50 miles of ARRL HQ, I have been there on multiple occasions. I was in the main transmitter room (not small, separate building) when they started an 'information bulletin'. I was interested, as an unnoticed observer, that the person initiating the 'Information Bulletin' asked if the frequency was clear before the start of the broadcast.

Here are the facts:
1. ARRL broadcast are 'information bulletins', limited in duration and number of times per week.
2. They are serving the Amateur Radio community at large, despite some personal feelings
3. They do not own the frequencies. The schedule is published so the effective use of the bulletins can be provided. Unwritten gentleman's agreement to let ARRL use the freq during the 'scheduled' times. This is for courtesy, not exclusive rights.
4. Those who constantly rail against the ARRL just because they can, are really your basic alpha hotels.
5. The transmitters are either manned, or closely monitored. (K1MAN uses a Radio shack timer)

K1MAN does not provide 'Information Bulletins', but outright broadcasting, many times a day, sometimes 24 hours a day, every day of the week.

I made many people uncomfortable pointing out the league was violating the rules just as much as the people on 14.313, and many spots on 75 meters. Riley said he was on a "crusade" to clean up amateur radio. I just had to ask.:wall:

They use FCC Part 97, and USC laws. Don't bring that ARRL imposed supposed gentlemen's agreements as a legal base, you will fail. Riley was hosting a FCC Forum. He claimed he was on a "mission" to clean up amateur radio.

I have already stated that I personally witnessed W1AW violate the rules on CW. You did not mention CW. Let me guess, the paid W1AW operator flips a switch that runs a CW computer program. I bet they do. I have heard W1AW bust in on qsos in progress about 50 times on various frequencies. they NEVER asked if the frequency was in use. I have heard several SSB nets that the net control op asked one time if the frequency was in use. 1 second later they began their preamble. Bottom line: I know what I heard. The ARRL knows they do this, but they are better than the average ham, they serve themselves, not me. They violate the rules everyday in this matter. The FCC should be sending W1AW an apparent liability to monetary forfeiture notice. Back then, the ARRL was violating the rules just like operators on 14.313, and spots on 75 Meters SSB. I would bet they still do. If the 'greater good' institutions violate the letter of the law, they are no better than K1MAN.

Never said it could be a legal defense. It is too bad that the character of today is not what it used to be, and that spirit of cooperation has more or less conceded to the trouble makers, spoiled sports, and the legal beagles.

Since I witnessed the operations at ARRL, I can tell you that they do listen first - saw it first hand, I was there, in person. And just because you hear people on your receiver, doesn't mean ARRL can hear the same people... propagation, remember...

Since I witnessed the operations at ARRL, I can tell you that they do listen first - saw it first hand, I was there, in person. And just because you hear people on your receiver, doesn't mean ARRL can hear the same people... propagation, remember...I stated several times now that I have only witnessed CW mode. How do they send the code? I really doubt if the control ops listen to each frequency, and send the code via a keyer. I could be wrong, but my guess it has been automatically sent going back to the technology that would facilitate such operation. I used the bulletins as a way of checking propagation conditions since the location is known. My first wire aerial was a compromise that wasn't very effective so, if I could hear the stations W1AW was walking on they should have been able to as well. I would hazard a guess that W1AW's antenna system was much better than mine. So, you're saying the op asked in CW on each band if the frequency was in use? If it was, what did they do? They would have to wait, or QSY like the rest of us do. I doubt if they have ever done that. They were willfully QRMing back in the 70's when I first got my Novice license. They were 15 years ago when I was very active, and worked 80 meters every night. I would guess they still do it. The ARRL pantload that I encountered stated that since the frequencies where published, then everyone should know. I asked if I were to start a radio club, and publish a schedule of times, and frequencies, then everyone should know that those frequencies are for my intended use, so don't use them? He sat down, and did not respond. If the FCC starts a "crusade" to stop rules violation, then it should apply to all of us, NO exclusions. The obvious answer to my question is "NO". If I started a radio club, and published a schedule of bulletins, I would not have a right to any frequency. Neither do they.

Hello.

The amazing thing is that Karol Madera actually runs by the rules that the ARRL has set.
He operates on a fixed frequency with a published schedule.
He does ask if the frequency is in use, not that he minds anything.
And his transmissions are limited, very little recordings and clearly up to the minute.
Do I aqgree with Karol, not as a rule.
But he does have the right of freedom of speech.
Since he does park it at one spot on the dial he is very easy to ignore.
My opinion is that although I disagree with Karol on a lot of issues at least he is doing part of it right.

By this Hearing Designation Order, we commence a hearing proceeding before a Commission Administrative Law Judge to determine whether the above-captioned application filed by Glenn A. Baxter for renewal of his license for Amateur Radio Station K1MAN should be granted.


As discussed below, the record before us indicates that Baxter has apparently willfully and repeatedly engaged in unlawful Commission-related activities, including causing interference to ongoing communications of other amateur stations, transmitting communications in which he had a pecuniary interest, failing to file requested information pursuant to an Enforcement Bureau (Bureau) directive, engaging in broadcasting without communicating with any particular station, and failing to exercise control of his station.


Based on the information before us, we believe that Baxter’s apparent continuing course of misconduct raises a substantial and material question of fact as to whether he possesses the requisite character qualifications to be and remain a Commission licensee. Accordingly, we hereby designate his application for hearing.

He very well may get a revocation. But that doesn't mean he'll stop interfering. In his mind he is 100% right and everyone else is 100% wrong. I doubt he will leave the air until such a day as the FCC shows up with the sheriff and some deputy's and physically removes the equipment from the premises. He thinks he has a right to do as he pleases and everyone else must get out of his way. I have heard him say it.

But do not mistake the purpose of the hearing. It is to determine whether or not to renew his license, so it is a de facto revocation hearing. If he can not present a valild case to keep his license, he will lose it.

This is just the bureacracy slowly grinding away. (Too slowly, IMHO, but that's another story.)

And... no, I don't expect this hearing to be the end. If he loses (as I anticipate he will, but it ain't over 'till it's over), he will appeal. I'm sure hel'll drag that out as long as he can. And if he still ultimately loses, yeah, I doubt he'll go QRT. He may start using a club call, or another's call (both with permission, I'm sure). Or he may just stay on the air sans license. If it gets that far, I sure hope they throw his butt behind bars.

Baxter will continue his broadcasts.

First, a hearing must be scheduled. This has yet to be done.

Then he must actually stand in front of the ALJ and be found unfit to retain his license. Depending on the skills of his counsel and the number of continuances filed, that might take a year or more.

If a finding goes against him and he loses his amateur radio license, he may be able to appeal the motion.

Upon being held liable for the $21k figure, yet another finding and appeals process kicks off. Should he not be able to pay the (possibly reduced) monetary amount, then he'll have to worry about jail time...and only if potential liens against his personally owned property fail to cover the amount for which he is liable.

Glen Baxter will never see a jail cell. If stripped of his license he'll probably move his operation out of the U.S. and into more "favorable" territory, partnering himself with one or more of the rogues therein.

If the jammers serve the agenda of those in power at the time, you're correct.

Think back to about 2000:

When the Clinton worm turned and a new executive branch was installed, the hate-mongers and radical types on 75M (for example) had their numbers severely curtailed due to new directives issued to the Enforcement Bureau. Seems a few fringe groups (along with their unlicensed contemporaries who often checked in) and their cadre of QRMers had somehow outlived their usefulness...

The end may be in sight. That doesn't mean it's near.

I'm afraid you're right, though. And there's precedent... KV4FZ went through a similar appeals process all the way up to the US Supreme Court before finally throwing in the towel and accepting his loss of license. Only in his case, he was permitted (after what, a year QRT?) to reapply for a ticket, which he did.

Still, he was accused of was nothing near what Baxter is doing. So if and when it gets that far, and Baxter officially loses his ticket for good, I don't anticipate that he will ever be allowed to reaply. (Of course, I could be wrong, YMMV)

But, where would he go?

Hmmm. True. With technology available today, it wouldn't be that hard to set up a transmitter off-shore that can be fed via VoIP. All he'd need is a sympathetic fellow whackjob & a local government or regulator willing to look the other way, especially if they are of the anti-American political persuasion.

Well, I can tell you from personal experience that Riley was effective, when he got involved in a problem. (Search the ARRL web site for the N3SH situation a few years back, and believe me, there was a lot more to that story) Could he have been more effective? Undoubtably, but there may be factors that were beyond his control... like a lack of staff to follow up on everything.

I would agree that Laura, to date, has been... underwhelming. I'm not willing to write her off -- yet -- but it would be nice to see some visible signs that she (and her office) is doing her job.

Someone who knows how to work the system can drag it out for years, nay, decades. The system is slow and cumbersome. Add in that Amateur enforcement takes a back seat to just about every other radio service, since the FCC only pretends to occasionally care.

Baxter knows how to work the system.

Personally, I'd like to see a return to one thing from the 1970's... license fees to renew your ticket. But on the proviso that those funds NOT go into the US government general fund (like they did then), but specifically earmarked to go to the FCC. Those fees should serve two purposes: permit the FCC to hire staff to manage the day-to-day administration of the Amateur service (such as call assignments, plus answer questions, even provide tests -- don't hold your breath on that last one), and permit the FCC to hire staff to enforce the rules: staff monitor stations, issue pink slips, follow up on pink slips, assess fines if needed, collect fines, take them to court, shut down truly offending stations, etc.

It won't happen, but one can always hope.

Some New info on Baxter's case as posted on K1TP's ..."As the world turns" info site .... advanced apologies for the KWW type cut and paste simulation!!


Baxter's pre-hearing conference has been rescheduled for September 7, 2011. Discovery will proceed with 25 interrogatories, 25 requests to admit, and 25 requests for documents, for each side. The Hearing is scheduled to take place after Baxter loses his collection case. Baxter has the burden of proof as to why he has the character to remain licensed.

Common Sense Guide to the K1MAN Case



Q: Is the FCC re-hashing old complaints in this hearing?
A: No, these are new complaints. They're essentially new instances of what Baxter was accused of in the 2006 Forfeiture Order.


Q: Is the FCC using the Maine collection case to determine Baxter's character?
A: No. Baxter has the burden of proof and his testimony and the new evidence will determine whether he's renewed or not.


Q: Does this case have anything to do with ARRL, the YL Net, K3VR, or ARNewsline?
A: No, these entities have not been accused of wrong-doing by the government and they are not on trial or scheduled for hearing.


Q: Is Baxter required to post a schedule?
A: No. A schedule's only required for bulletin stations operating on 5 bands and only if they want to pay their control ops.


Q: Am I required to know, be aware of, or avoid "Baxter's" bulletin frequency?
A: No. Baxter doesn't own or have legal claim to any frequency. HF bulletin stations are always required to yield to you, if you're operating there first.


Q: Does W1AW yield?
A: Reports indicate W1AW listens and moves, as required by law.


Q: Is it legal for a bulletin station to come on top of others using the frequency?
A: No, it is patently illegal for an HF bulletin station to willfully or intentionally interfere if you're on frequency first.


Q: What does "willfully and intentionally interfere" mean?
A: The FCC says he failed to listen and move elsewhere when the frequency was already in use. Failure to listen and move is a willful and intentional act.


Q: What if he listens and doesn't hear me operating?
A: That's very common. It's called incidental interference and it's not illegal. However, K1MAN is accused of willful and intentional interference.


Q: What's this "pecuniary interest" rule as it applies to Baxter?
A: The FCC says Baxter used his bulletins to drive people to his website where things are or were for sale.


Q: Do other stations do the same thing?
A: Possibly, but they aren't on trial and no amount of finger pointing and "but Jonny does it too" will get them on trial.


Q: Baxter says he's an engineer, has helped in emergencies, and has awards, doesn't he get a pass for good behavior in the past?
A: Nope. Baxter says a lot of things, but past behavior doesn't matter when you break the law.


Q: Baxter mentions Bill Pasternak and ARNewsline; is Bill in trouble?
A: Nope. Pasternak produces a bulletin, but he doesn't transmit it. All stations are responsible for their own transmissions and only their own transmissions.


Q: Is the FCC going to use evidence collected by average hams?
A: No. All evidence in both the Hearing in D.C. and the trial in Maine was collected by FCC personnel.


Q: Did the FCC encourage interference to the K1MAN bulletin?
A: Doubtful. If they did, Baxter will need to prove that to the satisfaction of the Judge.


Q: Are new rules necessary to clarify bulletin operations?
A: No. The rules are already clear enough for anyone willing to read and abide by existing laws.


Q: What is Baxter accused of now?
A: Here's the evidence the FCC plans to use against Baxter at the upcoming Hearing:




...the record before us indicates that Baxter has apparently willfully and repeatedly engaged in unlawful Commission-related activities, including causing interference to ongoing communications of other amateur stations, transmitting communications in which he had a pecuniary interest, failing to file requested information pursuant to an Enforcement Bureau (Bureau) directive, engaging in broadcasting without communicating with any particular station, and failing to exercise control of his station. Based on the information before us, we believe that Baxters apparent continuing course of misconduct raises a substantial and material question of fact as to whether he possesses the requisite character qualifications to be and remain a Commission licensee. Accordingly, we hereby designate his application for hearing.


On July 14, 2009, the Commission received a complaint that, at 1:00 p.m., Baxter willfully or maliciously interfered with other stations' communications by transmitting on top of ongoing communications."
On July 16, 2009, Commission personnel monitored Baxters station on frequency 14.275 MHz. During the monitoring, Baxters station began transmitting what FCC staff believed to be a pre-recorded program regarding amplifiers, but the transmission was unintelligible.


At 4:00 p.m. that day, Baxters station began transmitting again, disrupting ongoing communications on 14.275 MHz.
Commission personnel monitored Baxters station again on July 17, 2009, and at 1:28 p.m. determined that it was transmitting on frequency 14.275 MHz while other radio communications were ongoing.
At 4:45 p.m. on July 25, 2009, while a station in Spain was transmitting signal reports on the frequency of 14.275 MHz to amateur stations engaged in a contest, Baxter began transmitting on top of this station's communication, ultimately forcing the Spanish station to relocate to frequency 14.279 MHz in order to continue the contest.
:yes:

Hello.

And there is his defense.
He was transmitting on a pre published frequency and a pre published time.
True, the ARRL is not on trial, but they do the EXACT same thing.
That is his primary defense, and a very good one.
Amazingly enough, he was able to get the Spanish government to write him a letter indicating his complaint.
And, to add insult to injury, the guy can prove that he was on 14.275 prior to this contest.
The way he does it is to occupy the frequency pretty much 24 hours.
This is done with a low power transmitter that does the ID boogie once it detects a signal from a receiver.
This cat may be crazy, but he is smart!
14.275 is the known loony bin frequency of Amateur Radio.
The sooner the FCC deals with it, the better, but having hams key up only complicates matters.
The ONLY way to bust him is for everyone to stay off 14.275MHz, leave it free for him to do his broadcasts.
Make it very easy to prove that this is what is happening, broadcasting, and let the FCC do its thing.
Once this happens the FCC will be able to deal with him in short order.
