FCC Revokes Amateur License of California Ham

The FCC issued an Order of Revocation to Robert D. Landis, N6FRV, on Tuesday, November 20. The Commission said that “[b]ased on the evidence of his convictions for child molestation, we conclude that Mr. Landis lacks the basic requisite character qualifications to be and remain a Commission licensee.” Landis was convicted on two felony counts in 1991, fined $10,000 and sentenced to 11 years in prison. He received his call sign April 1, 1999; it was set to expire on November 1, 2006. According to the ARRL VEC, Landis filed for an address change and a renewal of his license on August 6, 2007, still within the two year grace period; the application was withdrawn on September 27.
