Exactly, with that attitude from the FCC then all of my network is 100% FCC certified because all the radio's have an FCC number on them, I would just have to put that number on the outside of the rootenna. Kurt Fankhauser WAVELINC P.O. Box 126 Bucyrus, OH 44820 419-562-6405 www.wavelinc.com

Well, let's ask! :) I assume part-15 rules are written quite a bit differently on this matter than part-90, but hey, why not ask? Randy Kurt Fankhauser wrote: Exactly, with that attitude from the FCC then all of my network is 100% FCC certified because all the radio's have an FCC number on

Not to burst a bubble but the special type certification that is part of part-15 was created for unlicensed solutions. Most license holders are responsible for the equipment that is in use. Thus the equipment is only certified to meet special regs of the band, unlike unlicensed where the

That is true only if the original modular radio was tested with an antenna of equal or greater gain. You'll want to look at the FCC filings that go with that radio; bring up the detail page and look at the test photos. Quite often you'll find that these modular radios were only tested with a

Right. The WISP then has the option of sending the AP or CPE to a certification lab with several different types of higher-gain outdoor antennas to get a new FCC ID number (a new certification) in /*your*/ company name. The cost is less than certifying without using the already-certified card
