                       TITLE 47--TELECOMMUNICATION
                   Subpart F_Ultra-Wideband Operation
Sec. 15.505  Cross reference.
    (a) Except where specifically stated otherwise within this subpart, 
the provisions of subparts A and B and of Sec. Sec. 15.201 through 
15.204 and 15.207 of subpart C of this part apply to unlicensed UWB 
intentional radiators. The provisions of Sec. 15.35(c) and 15.205 do 
not apply to devices operated under this subpart. The provisions of 
Footnote US 246 to the Table of Frequency Allocations contained in Sec. 
2.106 of this chapter does not apply to devices operated under this 
    (b) The requirements of this subpart apply only to the radio 
transmitter, i.e., the intentional radiator, contained in the UWB 
device. Other aspects of the operation of a UWB device may be subject to 
requirements contained elsewhere in this chapter. In particular, a UWB 
device that contains digital circuitry not directly associated with the 
operation of the transmitter also is subject to the requirements for 
unintentional radiators in subpart B of this part. Similarly, an 
associated receiver that operates (tunes) within the frequency range 30 
MHz to 960 MHz is subject to the requirements in subpart B of this part.
