FCC visits West Palm Beach Amateur Radio Club
FCC representatives from the Miami Field Office will be at the WPBARC meeting on Wednesday April 27, 2011 giving a presentation on how they track down pirate stations and other rule violators. Because of its proximity to the Caribbean, Latin America and South America the South Florida area has a large number of pirate broadcasters on many frequencies and modes. The Miami Field Office is one of the busiest in the country and they are really experts at tracking down these violators.
The WPBARC meeting is in the Motorola Theater at the South Florida Science Museum, where the club has a permanent Ham Radio exhibit and club station, WS4FSM.
There will also be a raffle for an Icom ID-880H, provided by HRO Atlanta. Tickets will be available at the meeting but the winner does need to be present if you already have your ticket from another recent club event. (But you will want to be there for the FCC).
