PART 15_RADIO FREQUENCY DEVICES--Table of Contents
Subpart C_Intentional Radiators
Sec. 15.241 Operation in the band 174-216 MHz.
(a) Operation under the provisions of this section is restricted to
biomedical telemetry devices.
(b) Emissions from the device shall be confined within a 200 kHz
band which shall lie wholly within the frequency range of 174-216 MHz.
(c) The field strength of any emissions radiated within the
specified 200 kHz band shall not exceed 1500 microvolts/meter at 3
meters. The field strength of emissions radiated on any frequency
outside of the specified 200 kHz band shall not exceed 150 microvolts/
meter at 3 meters. The emission limits in this paragraph are based on
measurement instrumentation employing an average detector. The
provisions in Sec. 15.35 for limiting peak emissions apply.
