His actions had the potential to do so much harm that not only should he get jail time, they need to add numbers to his serial number to keep him there.One of those paragraphs noted the use of the radio to distract police from accomplices which would be using the radio in the commission of a crime. I would think that would involve a few years in addition to the 400k.
I think he went s little bit beyond on the "potential" to the point it was against the law in any state, even if he was just monitoring a scanner. He was actively broadcasting misinformation in order to mislead police and cause chaos on an illegal frequency. In some cases in the commission of a crime.
If he had continued, who knows what?

"File not found" - FCC down??
No they just changed the URLs. That happened the last time I posted links from the FCC Daily Digest."File not found" - FCC down??
What are you saying, precisely? This person (allegedly) transmitted illegally on police frequencies with the intent to disrupt . He wasn't just listening to his scanner. This also goes beyond the FCC enforcement actions that have occurred against hams on 14.313, K1MAN, CB jammers, and even people illegally transmitting on the FM broadcast band. He was messing with a public safety service in our largest city.
His goal WAS to "tie up NYPD radio," with threats against specifically named cops, and calling in "assist" calls.These frequencies are for emergency traffic. If this goof wanted to behave this way, all he had to do is buy an FRS radio and talk to his hearts content not tie up NYPD radio.
One thing that is not lacking in the world are people with mental problems.
