This information is furnished under seperate cover AFTER the amp is
purchased by the end user. If operation above 15 meters is not possible
during type acceptance testing, the amp passes this regulation.

It is perfectly legal for an amateur to modify his equipment after purchasing
it. The "after-market" instructions are therefore just as legal as instructions
on how to extend the frequency coverage of a transceiver.
