For those intending to use this and other Chinese radios on Part 90 frequencies, a little research is in order. Below are two items relating to TYT in particular. Number 1 is taken from the FCC OET Equipment Authorization site. Number two is part of an email I received from TYT Electronics pursuant to an email I sent them containing several questions including FCC certification. Notable is the absence of both the UV F9 and the UV F6. For those interested in checking FCC cert, go the OET site and put in the Grantee code (first digits of the FCC ID) in the Grantee box and then scroll down to the bottom and click search and the system will bring up all radios certified by under that Grantee code (TYT = x24, Wouxun=wvt, Baofeng=zp5).
1) EQUIPMENT AUTHORIZATION is hereby issued to the named GRANTEE, and is VALID ONLY for the equipment identified hereon for use under the Commission's Rules and Regulations listed below.

We have FCC for TH-UVF1, TH-9000, we sent TH-UVF9 for FCC testing. But it cost a long time, still do not offer us a report for these two radio.
Some of our customer in the USA and Canada still buy them without FCC report.
