Months of hard work tracking various sources of malicious interference directed at the VE7RPTrepeater, owned and operated by the BCFMCA and located on Mt Seymour, have finally begun to pay off. On September 25th the FCC issued a Notice of Apparent Liability, including fines totaling $7,000, to James Grinton, K7VNI, located in BellinghamWashington. Grinton repeatedly and maliciously interfered with the operation of VE7RPTon a frequent basis. During the last 2 years Grinton directed his malicious interference and harassment at the President of the BCFMCA, jammed phone patches and periodically flooded the repeater with music and other forms of intentional interference.
