The quote above implies “automatic” compliance with FCC §15.219 rather than FCC §15.209 — according to the Procaster certification data submitted to the FCC that is, or has been publically available.
But cannot ALL unlicensed transmitters certified under Part 15 by the FCC for the AM broadcast band be installed and operated in configurations that are non-compliant with FCC §15.219?
IIRC, the FCC has issued citations to unlicensed operators using transmitters in the AM broadcast band having Part 15 certifications, when those installations were determined to be non-compliant with Part 15 by an FCC field inspector.
Note that my comments above are not “anti Part 15,” rather they are the opposite.
I do recognize that absent legal regulation, everyone is free to operate as they wish.
