I am curious about "FCC type requirements".
I know that transceivers use in commercial and CB radio service need to
be "FCC Type Accepted" for their particular use. Type acceptance means
that the equipment has gone through a certification process wherein the
it is certified that it meets certain standards in frequency tolerance,
spurious emissions, modulation quality and similar things. Most amatuer
equipment meets the specifications, or can if operated properly, but is
not "Type Accepted" and cannot legally be used on commercial frequencies.
I also know that commercially produced amateur gear must meet some kind
of specifications to be marketed in the US. We have all seen the
advertisements for the latest rig that is not yet certified (I think
that is the term they use) for sale in the US. I think this is something
different from "FCC Type Acceptance"
Can someone shed some light on the particulars about "Type Acceptance"
