Re: [WISPA] Tiger Direct is Breaking the Law

John,

The Link provided is for a 500mw amp extender.  500mw with small Omni is not 
illegal power levels in 2.4Ghz unlicensed.
Lucor very wel could have gotten that certified as a combination.

If they had a 1 watt  model, well that would be different.
But Take note that it is not illegal to make or sell 1 watt amps.  It is 
illegal to use a 1 watt amp in the US. We live in an international world, 
where many are not governed by the FCC.

I would argue that the buyer is the one in violation of laws, if they use it 
in the US. What might be more appropriate, is to create laws requiring 
resellers to report who they sell equipment that exceeds FCC allowable 
limits to in the US.  Or to force the reseller that sells equipment to US 
customers, to publically also post in advertisements that it is not legal 
for use in US, and Force the MAnufacturer to include paperwork in the box, 
that states that it is not legal for use within the US. So that 
unknowledgeable end users, are not incouraged to buy illegal equipment, 
without realizing that they are doing it.

If Tiger is selling 1 watt amps, without disclosing its legality in the US, 
then they should be reported. But I don;t think any one should be prevented 
from making or sellign anything, if disclosures are made.

Don;t get me wrong, I hate that stuff, when manufacturers start encouraging 
endusers to use AMPs for their end user PC. But that is a line item for a 
lobby effort to the FCC, not necessarilly anything illegal.

When we bought some 1W amps for export to a non-FCC country, Hyperlink made 
us sign a military/export use only form and fax it back to them.

It was not just a buy online thing.

Re: [WISPA] Tiger Direct is Breaking the Law

2008-06-02 Thread Dennis Burgess - Linktechs.net
it is'ent like its hard to find other companies selling this.  Amazon is 
selling it too, as well as compusa. .. The issue is that its not over 
powering the band?  Assuming its a 500mw amp thats basically 27 db, so 
if they have a 7 dbi omni on it, thats 34 dbi, under the limit

The only issue is that more of these devices we have out there, the less 
OUR stuff works. 

Travis, 1 watt amps are not illegal, its just illegal to use with an 
antenna more than 6db.  p2mp only of course.

But same difference, it should not be able to be used as it generates 
more interference and causes other issues, and yes, its not start to use 
etc.  But I don't think there is anything the FCC could do.  Other than 
its not a FCC Certified device...

  I think it's the manufacturers that need to be reported, not the
distributors or resellers. I know Hyperlink and YDI both still sell 1
watt amps right off their homepage.

  Does the FCC have a place where we can report this crap? This is
  flagrant

Re: [WISPA] Tiger Direct is Breaking the Law

2008-06-02 Thread Tom Sharples
I can't find them (Luxul) on the FCC search site:

https://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/GenericSearch.cfm?calledFromFrame=N

however that's not unusual since they may just be private labeling someone 
else's approved radio. Since this product iappears to feature a captive omni 
antenna, it's possible that it does meet FCC regs, while, no doubt, adding 
to the overall noise floor :-(

Subject: Re: [WISPA] Tiger Direct is Breaking the Law


 it is'ent like its hard to find other companies selling this.  Amazon is
 selling it too, as well as compusa. .. The issue is that its not over
 powering the band?  Assuming its a 500mw amp thats basically 27 db, so
 if they have a 7 dbi omni on it, thats 34 dbi, under the limit

 The only issue is that more of these devices we have out there, the less
 OUR stuff works.

 Travis, 1 watt amps are not illegal, its just illegal to use with an
 antenna more than 6db.  p2mp only of course.

 But same difference, it should not be able to be used as it generates
 more interference and causes other issues, and yes, its not start to use
 etc.  But I don't think there is anything the FCC could do.  Other than
 its not a FCC Certified device...
