Here's a copy of what I sent to the company with a cc: to the FCC.
Hopefully, with enough attention from the FCC & hams, they'll update their
web pages to give a clear warning that these are not to be used (or even
sold?) in the United States. Of course they are completely legal to sell
and use in many other countries in Europe and Africa, but the web page
doesn't give any information along those lines and it should.

Subject: Illegal 146Mhz Cordless phones
I am writing in reference to the 146 Mhz cordless telephones being sold on
your web site at:
One of these type of phones has turned up in Montana. It was tracked down
by Amateur Radio operators in that state. To the best of my knowledge this
is a violation of FCC rules.
The web page says nothing about not being unable to use these in the USA.
The FAQ page has the following statement:
"Why haven't I heard of these phones before?
Long-range phones have been around for decades. They are not sold in US
stores primarily because most are not FCC certified. We have been selling
these products since 1995, with great success."
This leads the consumer to believe that they could buy one of these phones
on the web site but not in US stores.
Nothing on the above two web pages indicates that they cannot and will not
be sold for use in the USA! Why not?!
