illegal radios?… People in the know
Are the planes going to fall out I the sky because of a GPS or robot radio?
What effect will these “illegal radios” have on society after the ban? Why is there no grandfather clause for radios in use? How can you get busted for using an illegal radio?

snoop ya beat me to it
You damn East time zone folks get all the luck
…but since we’re going retro, just substitute the word “FCC” for “video”. Then substitute the word “wave” for “star”. Ok, ya use a little imagination here…
….and soon we’ll all complete our full circle in time. Break out the plumb bobs boys & girls….

All the jokes aside you may want to review the links below. Both of these appear to be data transmissions by licensed radios that conflicted with the use of the same frequency by others. Complaints were filed and investigated, these links are the notice of violations issued.
Both of these are from the FCC Field Issued Citations page for notices prior to 2010. Citations since March 2010 are liked from that page.

I’ve been told my Geodimeter radios are 0.25 Watts and do not require an FCC license, even for commercial use. Apparently, anything under 1 watt does not require an FCC license. I’m wondering if the FCC would still consider them to be in violation even if they are considered “non-licensable”. I’ve tried to search the FCC for an answer but can not find a specific reference.
But like the others, I’m not too worried about. They have about a 1000′ range, at best.

Maybe – you need to check with your vendor.
I don’t care what you do, but if the FCC nails you you will certainly wish you had taken care of this. And I would not want to mess with them right now. They are pissed as hell that the GPS users “interfered” with LS, and will be more than happy to levy fines on us.
