LMCC to Address Noncompliant Products

EWA will be preparing a letter for review by the Land Mobile Communications Council (LMCC) membership that will be sent to the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau (EB) requesting that the Commission respond to the growing number of products imported from Asia that are sold largely over the internet, for use on Part 90 spectrum that are not certified for Part 90 use, do not meet Part 90 technical requirements, and permit front-panel programming of frequencies. These devices are being purchased by public safety as well as business users and present serious interference opportunities to both the device users themselves and incumbent operations. EWA also plans to alert radio dealers and their customers as well as to make national distributors aware that certain products that they are distributing do not comply with Federal regulations.
