5. No, they actually have what is called Official Observers

They are located throught the US and territories and use triangulation and direction finders when they have enough reports of interference within a spectrum. Thesr are bith professional and amateur radio operators that provide this service.

The fines can be astronomical once one is found as the FCC will monitor a site for a number of days before they move in. The fines are for each day they monitor as well as anything else they can heap on the offender. Sometimes jail time happens too.
