Just out of curiousity I looked up the original NOUO on this. The field strength was measured as 7368 uV/m at 643 meters. This, calculating back, gives an approximate antenna effective radiated power of 439 milliwatts, not a blowtorch by any means. My guess is that the offender was using a FM transmitter kit with a kit amplifier (easy to get from a well known manufacturer), but this is only a guess. My 2 meter hand held produces 5 times this power and I can use it legally!
The big mistake here, other than violating the rules for field strength, is ignoring the FCC communications. Some folks just have to learn the hard way.
