Finally some S-Band QRM Good News!



Finally something that can be called good news in the world of unlicensed
devices interfering with our S-Band downlinks.  Although no action was
taken (or apparently needed) by the FCC, it's good to see an industry that
has decided NOT to use the 13cm ham band for their unlicensed devices.
This is excerpted from a broadcast engineering newsletter I receive...

  FCC SCRAPS RELAXATION OF RF LIGHTING DEVICE EMISSION LIMITS
  AT 2400-2500 MHZ

  On June 9, 1999, the FCC adopted a First Report and Order that
relaxed the emission limits for RF lighting devices operating in
the 2.51-3.0 MHz band, but deferred to a future date action on
changes to the rules for RF lighting devices in the 2400-2500 MHz
band.  Now, with no apparent remaining interest by industry to
produce RF lighting devices in the 2400-2500 MHz band, the FCC has
decided to forego any further rule relaxations, at least for now.
