A couple of things
I talked with Dave at Tekk this afternoon, he said he has had no legal problems in the 5 or 6 years
he has been selling them and that the FCC has no problems with them..
from the FCC authorization
FCC Rule Parts Frequency Range (MHZ) Output Watts Frequency Tolerance Emission Designator
90.210 420.0 - 500.0 5.0 2.5 PM 8K50F3E
90.210 420.0 - 500.0 50.0 2.5 PM 8K50F3E
90 420.0 - 500.0 5.0 2.5 PM 16K0F3E
90 420.0 - 500.0 50.0 2.5 PM 16K0F3E
From the license apps I have been watching, it looks like most look like 11K2F3E and 7K60FXE
from the FCC rules:
private land mobile licensees operating in the VHF/UHF bands as of January 1, 2013
Must operate on 12.5 kHz (11.25 kHz occupied bandwidth) or narrower channels, or
Employ narrowband-equivalent technology, i.e., a technology that achieves the narrowband equivalent of at
least one channel per 12.5 kHz of channel bandwidth for voice and transmission rates of at least 4800 bits
per second per 6.25 kHz for data systems operating with bandwidths greater than or equal to 12.5 kHz.
It looks to me that 8K50F3E would comply with this rule.
