Ok. I am not trying to be argumentative here - just trying to sort this out in my own mind...User: 1. Is prohibited from using a non type-accepted unit in the US (does not matter if you buy it or if you make your own radio, you can not use it on a frequency that require type acceptance (Part 90,95 etc))
2. You are prohibited from transmitting on non licensed or authorized channels
3. You can also be given violation for programming channel for Tx that you are not authorized or licensed for (there are some exemptions to this)(radio shop or programmer can get violation as well)
Items 2 and 3 that you mention are only relevant for TX ... so is it item 1 that applies, even if the radio is RX only ? That confuses me, since I see a Yaesu VR-500 is 100khz - 1299 mhz ... they have no transmitter ...
So back to my original question - I understand why the harris unity has limited bands for TX, but you're saying there are regulatory problems if they opened it all the way up for RX ?
