Let’s put on the brakes here and start over. I assume you are talking about what I said earlier today in my “WRONG,WRONG and WRONG!!!!” reply to Lee’s previous message with the same subject. In my message, only the first two paragraphs are my words, the rest is all pasted from various FCC documents as backup material so people wouldn’t have to wade through the FCC site to see if I was telling the truth.
The sole point of my post was: Nowhere is it written that it is illegal to own or posses an uncertified transmitter.
That’s all. Nothing deep there. If fluidity and case law can somehow make possession of an uncertified transmitter illegal, then I wouldn’t want to live in the US any more. I think you probably glossed over my post when you saw all the FCC rules. It’s never a good idea to put a bunch of FCC rules in a post if you want people to read it!
After reading all the part 15 forums over many years, the “whisper-down-the-lane” phenomenon is tediously persistent. Sure as shootin, a year, or whatever, from now someone will post somewhere that they heard it is illegal to buy, own or possess an uncertified transmitter because they read it somewhere on the web.
