Well, the UI-View group is also located in the USA (and not at
yahoogroups.uk) but anyway, amateur radio is international and not a
USA only matter, and I would also suggest that frequency abuse should
be handed over to those authorities which are in power to do something
about it. Some places, it's the national AR association first, and
then the "official" authorities (like FCC in your country). But that
wasn't the main thing.

Well, even if I used a couple of year's of application before I was
allowed into the APRSSIG, and am living in a part of the world where
USA is regarded as a faraway country, I see the sig as public enough
to reach all its members plus their friends if they are interested,
and if abusers have contacts within the group, they would see if what
they are doing is making much noise, and if so, they might probably be
encouraged to continue or increase their abuse.
