That’s the problem. Everybody has their take on how to interpret the rules. Not to many really know and it’s a shame that legal stuff has to be so complicated. After all, most of us are trying to be legal with our Part 15 stations, and for the most part we really think we are.
Well now I’ve done it. I fired off an email to the FCC for clarification. Is it necessary to satisfy 47 CFR 15.209 (field strength rule) if I’ve satisfied 47 CFR 15.219 (input power and antenna limits) for an AM band Part 15 operation.
In the FCC document “Understanding Part 15” they state early on that 15.209 (field stength rule) applies to ALL Part 15 transmitters using frequencies above 9 kHz except where special provisions for stronger emissions have been made for specific uses. So they are saying that regardless of other requirements, emission limits still apply.
At least, that’s my take on it. Let’s see what they have to say. I’ll carbon y’all if and when they reply.
