    Someone passed the five on the 11 meter band in Maryland. The FCC just setup a monitoring station in Glen Burnie MD. To monitor and track down "them big boys mostly in mobiles running megga powa and dirty radios" in the Baltimore area. It seems the local Hams got tired of all the bleed over, interferance and hash and trash. :shock:

    Not sure... It could be a rumor. The guy that passed the 5 was serious. and claimed he wasn't going to key his big box for a while. :p I remember while monitoring 11 meters I think ch22 a while back. I think the locals say you have to key big watts to talk on that channel.... A lady came on the band and said that the Hams are complaining about bleed over.... That was that... A few months later comes the 5 about the monitoring station going up. :roll:

    OK, Drifter. Thanks for the reply. It is an area with a lot of people so it might be true.
