In post #11 RFB makes the case for including the FCC rules in discussions of certifications and technical matters. Though I don’t understand some of his assertions I will explain the rationale for my comment in post #5.
My suggestion is based on the observed dynamics in many previous threads which could go something like this:
“Of course such a ground connection is not legal.”
“Yes it is because the ground lead is only the wire going to the pipe.”
“No it isn’t.”
“That doesn’t matter because the device is certified.”
“But it was on a table when certified.”
“Well, it had a ground lead so this is legal.”
“No its not.”
“Yes it is.”
“Well, I think an FCC inspector would disagree.”
And on and on and on. It is another go around such as we have seen before when the rules are debated which prompted my suggestion. No one is bound by it.
