Many FCC (and other government agency) rules may appear to be "open
to interpretation by the reader," but they have usually already been
interpreted by the agency and by courts for purposes of their
application to regulated entities (radio operators, in the case of
FCC rules). Regulated entities ignore these interpretations at their
peril. They are found in the agency's administrative and enforcement
decisions and in court orders, and sometimes in other rule
sections. Generally, one needs access to a third-party service like
Westlaw to do efficient searches in the FCC decisions, and certainly
to search court cases.
Agency rules are just the starting point when it comes to
administrative law (the law dealing with administrative agencies).
