Bigger Fish to Fry!

The FCC released an Enforcement Advisory reminding the public – particularly fishermen - that the marketing, sale or use of radio frequency devices that do not comply with FCC rules is prohibited. This advisory cautions against the use of devices that operate on radio frequencies assigned to Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) that are used for marine navigation safety communications. The devices of concern are operated to mark and track fishing nets, a spectrum use that is not authorized.
