ARLB013 FCC Issues Enforcement Advisory: Radio Users Again Reminded
Not to Use Radios in Crimes

On April 20, the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau issued a new Enforcement
Advisory, repeating the admonishments contained in a January
Advisory that no licensee or user of the Amateur or Personal Radio
Services may use any radio equipment in connection with unlawful
activities of any nature.

The Enforcement Advisory can be found online in PDF format at,
https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DA-21-453A1.pdf .

The Commission specifically cautioned that individuals found to have
used radios in connection with any illegal activity are “subject to
severe penalties, including significant fines, seizure of the
offending equipment, and in some cases, criminal prosecution.”

In addition, licensees should be aware that illegal operation in any
service or band, including completely outside the amateur
allocations, could potentially disqualify a person from holding any
FCC license in any service, not just the Amateur Service.

Any amateur observing a suspicious infraction that might be of
illegal or criminal nature should report it to their local law
enforcement office or the FBI.
