The mobile vans are a great example of the commercialization of low power radio and a tantalizing opportunity. I hope RichPowers will continue to keep us updated on his remarkable efforts!
Here is a link to a study done in Oregon about the opportunities
WARNING: The FCC also states it is illegal in the USA to posses, transport, sell, market, own or operate any transmitter that is not a kit that does not comply with and bear an FCC certification ID tag.
There certainly are restrictions on transmitters that are not certified – maybe not quite these restrictions, however.
As TAW Global, marketer of the Whole House unit learned the hard way, it is definitely prohibited, and actively enforced against, to market or sell an assembled transmitter that is not certified.
If the transmitter you are operating exceeds the field strengths in the regs then it is prohibited to operate it.
As far as possess, transport or own, well, not so much…
Were that the case, the NOUOs, NOVs and NALs in our FCC Field Notices RSS feeds would include seizure and impound actions for each field strength violation rather than limiting those actions to extreme and repeated rules violations.
