[aprssig] Radio Pirates - Question.

  I would ask; how were they presented by the vendor?  What did the vendor say or claim?  Were they talked about in a cavelier way so as to, perhaps, help people think they were "better" that FRS?  Or as ways to listen in to xxx and yyy?  Stuff like that.
  I would have tried to get the store/person's name just to be able to follow up in some way -perhaps with Laura, depending on how things shake out.  Even an alert to the ARRL .  They are *very* interested in the Wouxun UV-3R radios that fail, by far, the Part 90 certification they were granted by the FCC..

The problem is that random people, most of whom probably think that the radios they're buying are akin to toy store walkie-talkies, buy them and start randomly stomping all over the spectrum.  

It's legal for them to be sold ( and I think it should be ), but they end up causing all sorts of grief to licensed users.

Curious but what is exactly wrong with this? Anyone (non-hams) can buy
a ham radio. It's just illegal to broadcast without a license.
