RFICs and other devices use coded transmissions to keep from confusing signals 
of other devices.  That creates QRM on the frequency that is receivable by 
another receiver.  The question is whether your receiver is tolerant of the 
part-15 devices.  In general, amatuer radio receivers are not tollerant because 
we use basic, uncoded signals which causes us to hear everything else in 
addition to what we are really listening for.
