Mike,

If you think you are under the radar you are sorely mistaken. You admitted on a public list that gear you use is not certified.

I am not exempt from anything, but my 11 customers and I can certainly fly under the radar using gear isn't harming anyone until I have completed my Mikrotik compliance efforts.

So are you telling us you are exempt, then? The justificatiom is that you
are small- a Ma and Pa?  Mikrotik certification is already sorted out.
They are not approved.  Look for the label on the end product.  If you
made it yourself, it ain't certified!



Don't get me wrong, I'm not avoiding a certified system. However, it is just one of the many factors that go in to choosing a system. The cards I
am using are certified with the antennas I use (to the best of my
knowledge,
waiting for the FCC to come back up).

I will have my Mikrotik certification issues sorted out this summer. As Marlon said earlier, the FCC isn't going after ma and pa WISP, but after
gross negligence in vendors and manufacturers.

I like to think of it more like constructive public pressure rather than paranoia. Paranoia would be a term used in regard to unfounded concern. Certification as a matter of law is not unfounded concern, it is fact and
therefore paranoia is not a just description of the pressures we see
being
placed on the makers of the platform. I personally love the Mikrotik
platform but feel it should have a suite of certified system options for wireless use which we do not see currently. The lack of this has limited
my
ability to consider use of this platform for wireless solutions. I still use Mikrotik often for SoHo router / firewall / hotspot gateways / etc. I
would consider it for some wireless applications if there were FCC
certified options available. Until then I will not buy anything from
anyone
that is not FCC certified from this date forward. I spent about $300K on
gear last year. Vendors take note!

Rick,

Does that mean we can take a 532 board and a cm9 and use it elsewhere
and consider it certified ?

No. You would have to use the exact same parts to be considered legal
from the antenna to the power supply. This would mean you would have
to
get the manufacturer of all these parts in the trango system. If you
took this approach you would be taking on the responsibility to make
sure this really a was certified system.

I assume you read the FAQ that Jack Unger setup to answer these
questions about certification.

Dawn DiPietro
