Well said WDCX.
WDCX said “Not true. Ham operators have to follow FCC Rules as well.”
MrBruce says “Correct, but they are not as restricted as we are. I do understand RF power output rules are applied, but signal distance and range is not”
WDCX Said: “I think the big difference here is that amatuer radio operators have a FCC issued license. Part 15 operators do not.”
MrBruce says: “I would be willing to apply for such a license, if need be, to operate such a part 15 station.”
When I speak about a license, I’m not referring to a part 73 type license, just a form of registration with the FCC that I am allowed to operate a part 15 station with authroization.
Remember those old CB radio licenses? I realize those are no longer needed, but a similar license could be authorized for a part 15 station.
