CHAPTER I--FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION
PART 15_RADIO FREQUENCY DEVICES--Table of Contents
Subpart C_Intentional Radiators
Sec. 15.223 Operation in the band 1.705-10 MHz.
(a) The field strength of any emission within the band 1.705-10.0
MHz shall not exceed 100 microvolts/meter at a distance of 30 meters.
However, if the bandwidth of the emission is less than 10% of the center
frequency, the field strength shall not exceed 15 microvolts/meter or
(the bandwidth of the device in kHz) divided by (the center frequency of
the device in MHz) microvolts/meter at a distance of 30 meters,
whichever is the higher level. For the purposes of this section,
bandwidth is determined at the points 6 dB down from the modulated
carrier. The emission limits in this paragraph are based on measurement
instrumentation employing an average detector. The provisions in Sec.
15.35(b) for limiting peak emissions apply.
(b) The field strength of emissions outside of the band 1.705-10.0
MHz shall not exceed the general radiated emission limits in Sec.
