FCC fines Alaskan CBer for interfering with Air Traffic.

Did anyone else see this??
On July 17, the FCC announced that it had issued a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture and Order ( NAL) in the amount of $12,500 to Glenn S. Yamada, of Kenai, Alaska.

In January 2012, the FCC received a complaint regarding interference to an authorized user in the aeronautical band -- a safety of life service -- on 21.964 MHz. According to the FCC, the complaint “Concerned a male subject talking and interfering with the control and monitoring of air traffic over the North Atlantic.”

The FCC’s High Frequency Direction Finding Center (HFDFC) monitored the frequency over the next few days, and on January 31, “observed a subject matching the details of the compliant transmitting on the frequency 21.965 MHz.” The HFDFC noted that the subject was using the call “1600 Alaska,” that the actual operating frequency was 27.025 (CB channel 6) and that the transmissions were coming from Kenai.

"The actual operating frequency was 27.025 (CB channel 6)"

It would be interested to know what equipment he was using & if it had been messed about with.
