Jupiter, Florida resident William Flippo has been sentenced to 15 months in prison and fined $25,000 after his conviction on eight counts, including unlicensed operation and intentionally interfering with amateur radio communications. The FCC said the court action was the result of the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau’s probe that began in 1998. Complaints from a ham group, the Jupiter-Tequesta Florida Repeater Group, sparked the investigation. After serving his time, Flippo will be required to serve a year of supervised release.
