    12 or 15 years ago the local radio rambo ended up in a similar situation. His neighbors kept calling the cops for the interference he was causing. They finally paid him a visit and he started playing mobile rambo. I figured he had other things going on at the house and didn't want the police coming around.

    Just had to renew my Illinois FOID (firearm owner identification card) If we stay here and that's a big IF we stay in Illinois a little longer I have to posses this to own a firearm or even buy ammo. Hopefully my job takes me out of the Nazi police state of Illinois for good.. we shall see..

    Yup cross the river and pretty much everything goes down. Gas, tobacco, alchohol, property taxes. One thing seems to go up.. public school test scores. We have a slew of gas stations and tobacco shops all set up as soon as you cross into Missouri and Kentucky. I dont smoke anymore but the difference is astronomical. $30 less for a carton. Gas drops 40-60 cents a gallon. Alchohol is about the only thing that's not a huge drop. Guess they figured it's best for the residents of Illinois to stay drunk so they dont care about living in Illinois..

    But but but.. weed is legal now. You should see the taxes on that stuff!! Anyway didn't mean to completely throw this thread off the rails. :)

    This is different as there are local laws governing firearms, but nothing about what radio equipment is legal or not. That is all determined at the federal level.

    The enforcement ability may have been allocated to local authorities, but 99.999% of them will not do anything about it because A) they don't have the resources to deal with non-violent stuff like this and B) they don't know anything about what would be legal or not. They just don't have the requisite training or resources to enforce the laws/rules that are out there.

    I would add that they probably don't care either.
