The WIA welcomed the successful prosecution in Werribee Magistrates Court on 11 January 2012 by the ACMA of a former amateur who had continued to cause interference to amateurs even after his amateur licence had been cancelled by the ACMA.

The ACMA has reported the prosecution on its "Engage" website under the heading "Amateurs need to play by the rules".

In the article the the ACMA says:

"The ACMA reminds amateur operators that interference to amateur radio frequencies, particularly by the jamming of signals, can have a serious impact on safety, particularly in emergencies. All amateur licensees should be aware of and must operate their station in accordance with the Act and the licence conditions relating to the type of licence held."
