Gentlemen,  lets sort this problem out now before too many shoot off without 
thinking..  If there is a Foundation call  driving about using a mode they 
are not licenced for then why not advise them with some carefully chosen 
words rather than this type of outburst.  The Foundation is the starting 
level entry into our hobby and as such there are many who are definately 
still learning. Some will not make an upgrade but many will and already 
have. We should be encouraging them to upgrade, not abuse them when they 
slip up.     Unless you know that the person is blatantly abusing the rules 
then it would behove us all to give some guidance and direction to them 
first.  Who knows they may think they are only receiving and that their 
software has been set so they do not transmit but can still receive  from 
others..  Maybe they have already upgraded but havent the new call yet. You 
know what temptation can be like!!  Has anyone yet bothered to contact the 
person?  Who has seen them? Check their mail address on the ACMA site and 
drop them a "friendly" reminder that they are not allowed to use a digital 
mode yet.
