A certain website accused a now non member of this board of exactly that being a Pirate because he bought a part 73 transmitter and was about to lower the radiated power down to part 15 levels by using attinuation or coax that leaks just enough to be part 15 legal. According to him at that time it was 100% illegal. And when I placed a post here asking him that if you attinuate a part 73 transmitter to meet part 15 levels why then did he have issues with that member.
According to him he claims that you must only operate a certified or in case of a kit verified transmitter. This is bull as far as I can see but again he insists he is 100% correct on this statement. But when asked about that Radio camp transmitter that went 5 miles on FM you got an answer that it was legal because it was 250 uV/m from the property line.
But again NO CERTIIED part 15 transmitter I know goes anywhere near the range he was making that Radio camp transmitter go. So again there is some unclear postings about this through out the Internet.
