Now, if you guys are going to put big sticky labels on people's windshields,
I think I might program a tiny track with a fixed GPS position of a
neighbor's house, make the beacon text match his car (ie blue honda civic),
and assign the tracker a vulgar tactical call.  Then I just have to sit back
at watch the fireworks.  I guess what I'm trying to say here is let's not be
too eager to track a pirate station with his GPS coordinates alone.  And
let's not take to some vigilante enforcement.... slow and steady wins the
race every time.  The most we should do is help collect info and data and
forward it to the FCC to deal with in a proper way that can't be screwed up
so that the guy gets off on a technicality.

Gosh, I never though I could be so level headed.... lol.
