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

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.
