FCC

NOTICE OF APPARENT LIABILITY FOR FORFEITURE

1. We propose a forfeiture in the amount of $39,278 against Ocean Adrian Hinson for apparently operating, without authorization from the Commission, a radio on a frequency licensed to the County of Surry, North Carolina (Surry County) and used by the Surry County Communications Center to communicate with local first responders. More particularly, Mr. Hinson admitted impersonating a unit of the Westfield Volunteer Fire Department (Westfield VFD) in radio communications with the county’s emergency dispatchers. Through his actions, Mr. Hinson has demonstrated an apparent deliberate disregard not only for the Commission’s authority and rules, but also for the safety of first responders and the public that they are called to serve and protect. Commission action in this context is therefore essential to safeguard authorized operations on spectrum licensed for public safety uses, and, accordingly, a substantial penalty appears warranted.

And Before the Community Starts Going Off with the Baofeng This and the Baofeng That Garbage--It Clearly States The Violator has a Mobile Rig in His Truck--They did Not Mention What Kind of Rig it is

What it Comes Down to is Any One and Any Radio can be Programmed for Fire & Police Frequencies--

There is No Reason to Single Out 1 Specific Radio

Read the Whole Reoprt and NAL Orders

But if he did something illegal with it, then it has to be a Baofeng. People don't
do illegal things with Kenwoods, Yaesus, Motorolas, etc

It depends if it was analog or on the viper p25 system. It could be a number of fleabay radio and software possibilities. Follow the link for the rest of the storey. Looks like it happened more than one time.
