I did look at it. The article is all over the place, first it says the issue is illegal modifications, then it gets into programming.
The FCC citation itself only mentions programming.
I thought it was illegal to transmit where you're not licensed, not to possess a radio that is programmed with that frequency.
When I hear about modification and the offense being the actual programming by Mr. Perez, on a 154MHz frequency, I wonder if he modified and then reprogrammed a type-accepted MURS-only radio or something.
Oh, and just look at this...
Guys became best friends.
Jose can you see...
HUH??? If you actually read 47CFR90.427 (b) then you would know what the issue is.
a LICENCED station (WQVL958) being modified to Tx on frequencies not authorized by the license.
Where did you come up with the MURS reference? This is a station authorized to Tx @ 100,000 watts
Pretty cut and dried.
Once you start talking about commercial services you are talking about a whole different ballgame.
The license power is 100.000 watts or one hundred watts.
I didn't realize that, I was thinking from an amateur radio point of view. Thank you.
Reading between the lines, nothing has really changed.
If you interfere with a licensed service, the FCC will come looking for you. And if they prove you modded the radio, it's just another detail.
And if you don't clobber some licensed service, you are not the FCC's problem.
I suppose it could add one more violation to the bill if they go after you for hawking non-legal radios on your web site.
But they won't come knocking your door down because you added channels to a Cobra 148.
