PART 15_RADIO FREQUENCY DEVICES--Table of Contents
Subpart C_Intentional Radiators
Sec. 15.243 Operation in the band 890-940 MHz.
(a) Operation under the provisions of this section is restricted to
devices that use radio frequency energy to measure the characteristics
of a material. Devices operated pursuant to the provisions of this
section shall not be used for voice communications or the transmission
of any other type of message.
(b) The field strength of any emissions radiated within the
specified frequency band shall not exceed 500 microvolts/meter at 30
meters. The emission limit in this paragraph is based on measurement
instrumentation employing an average detector. The provisions in Sec.
15.35 for limiting peak emissions apply.
(c) The field strength of emissions radiated on any frequency
outside of the specified band shall not exceed the general radiated
emission limits in Sec. 15.209.
(d) The device shall be self-contained with no external or readily
controls which may be adjusted to permit operation in a manner
inconsistent with the provisions in this section. Any antenna that may
be used with the device shall be permanently attached thereto and shall
not be readily modifiable by the user.
