Re: CIMS00002972229 - Question on MURS
I am not trying to teach a course in communications law, but I think it is important to point out that there is a LOT of misinformation on the Internet and the ultimate responsibility for FCC compliance lies with the USER!
Having said that, I think it also important to know the intended use of the radios. If it is for personal use, you have very limited, but affordable alternatives in MURS. To my knowledge, NONE of the commercial radio manufacturers (HYT, ICOM, Kenwood, Midland, or Vertex) with the exception of Motorola and Ritron produce MURS radios. While the USE of the radio does not require a license, the use of the radio DOES require the use of an FCC Part 95 Type Accepted product. If in doubt, ask the supplier to send you a copy of the FCC Part 95 Type Acceptance Certificate. If they don't send a copy of the official FCC certification, you can assume that they do not have Type Acceptance when they don't provide the requested documentation.
