Re: [Suggestion] Trading Post

A LOOOONG time ago, Amateur radio stores would NOT sell you a transmitter unless you provided a valid license. Then a guy in New York filed a complaint with the FTC over unfair restraint of trade, and they all stopped asking for proof that you had a license.
I don't think the FCC ever required it, but it kept a lot of ham rigs off 11 meters!
Sure it would be stupid to sell such a rig to someone that plans to use it illegally, but at least if they can keep it on 11 meters until they get caught....
Other than the ones that the dumb criminals don't know how to adjust, and end up splattering right on through 10 meters as well.
Let the CB'ers trash 11 meters all they want, that is until they get caught, fined, and even jailed, it's their band after all.
Maybe even a few of them will manage to electrocute themselves with their 5kw linear amplifiers, thus removing themselves from the Gene pool altogether.
My problem is with the pirate CB'ers with Ham rigs on 10 meters.
Those RF Terrorists need to be Fox Hunted down, and be sent off to serve a life sentence in a 'Faraday Caged' prison cell, at either the ADX 'Supermax' prison in Colorado, or Gitmo Bay, Cuba.
Then subject them to the worst torture that could ever be inflicted on a Terrorist 10 meter Pirate,
placing them in a refrigerated isolation cell and forcing them to learn 20WPM Morse Code before they are allowed out.
