APPLICATION NOTE 5582

Part 15B To Be or Not to Be


Abstract: Ordinary people ignore the FCC Part 15 warnings they receive with their consumer devices because they don’t understand what they are or what they mean. We provide some comic relief with consumer’s mis-information. My power company is installing Smart Meters, their explanation of Part 15 was silly. They explained it as a one-way street, I would have to accept the transmissions of the power meter because the FCC said so. The representative actually was upset when I explained Par 15 applied to the power company equally, they are required to relocate their meter if my 900MHz ISM band transmissions caused their meter to have reception issues.
