Timothy Alan Dick (Tim Allen) of Last Man Standing Files False/Misleading information with FCC

The story recently broke that Timothy Alan Dick (legal name), also known as Tim Allen on several popular TV programs of international acclaim, has taken and passed his FCC Technician - Amateur Radio exam. Tim received FCC callsign KK6OTD.

The callsign comes back registered to a "Tim Dick" which is not the legal name on his State ID. Alan also furnished the FCC with more false information. The address listed as 11500 Hart St
North Hollywood, CA 91605 isn't a physical address. A Google Earth search of the address shows the address to be an empty paring lot with no capability of receiving any sort of mail. See photo below.

How or why Mr. Dick is allowed to have an amateur radio license is in question at this moment,  as he has drug related criminal convictions. On October 2, 1978, Dick was arrested in the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport for possession of over 650 grams (1.43 lb) of cocaine. He subsequently pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges, and provided the names of other dealers in exchange for a sentence of three to seven years rather than a possible life imprisonment. He was paroled on June 12, 1981, after serving 2 years and 4 months in Federal Correctional Institution, Sandstone in Sandstone, Minnesota. Dick had the Federal Bureau of Prisons Register # 04276-040.   

Restricted and Commercial Operator, and General Mobile Radio Services, on page 11, the appicant has to certify the following in certification#4: 

The Applicant / Licensee certifies that neither the Applicant / Licensee nor  any  other  party  to  the  application is subject to a denial  of Federal  benefits  pursuant  to Section  5301  of the  Anti-Drug    Abuse Act of 1988, 21 U.S.C. § 862, because  of a conviction  for possession  or distribution  of a controlled substance. 

This certification does  not  apply  to applications filed in services exempted under Section  1.2002(c) of the rules, 47  CFR §   1.2002(c).  See Section  1.2002(b)  of the rules,  47  CFR § 1.2002(b),  for the definition of “party to the application” as used in this certification.

It is unknown at this time whether or not the U.S. Federal Government will file perjury or other charges against Mr. Dick.
