CHAPTER I--FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION
PART 15_RADIO FREQUENCY DEVICES--Table of Contents
Sec. 15.17 Susceptibility to interference.
(a) Parties responsible for equipment compliance are advised to
consider the proximity and the high power of non-Government licensed
radio stations, such as broadcast, amateur, land mobile, and non-
geostationary mobile satellite feeder link earth stations, and of U.S.
Government radio stations, which could include high-powered radar
systems, when choosing operating frequencies during the design of their
equipment so as to reduce the susceptibility for receiving harmful
interference. Information on non-Government use of the spectrum can be
obtained by consulting the Table of Frequency Allocations in Sec. 2.106
of this chapter.
