I witnessed 3 open mikes on 16 this weekend. One was just adults chatting and laughing and the other two were kids playing with the mic. Nothing that I heard from the CG although I did get some garbled transmissions over top. The open mics were probably at high power. I did hear the CG come on and scold some folks for having a two way conversation on 16 twice.
Also heard some "adults" doing stupid things on 16. Very frustrating. I think we need to get back to all radios requiring a license. I am not for big brother but when I was a kid, you never heard anything inappropriate on the radio. Even on CBs.
My feeling is to do nothing. They cannot hear you and you are just adding clutter to the already busy channel.
A license will not stop the idiot. However license or not, triangulate then levy a fine if it was not a honest mistake.
