The Phrase in question is "Type Accepted", and ALL Transmitters licensed
under Part 90, 80, 20, and a few others, MUST be Type Accepted by the
FCC, to be marketed, Imported, and sold, in the US. Any person may
modify any piece of equipment they choose, HOWEVER, said modification
MAY void the Type Acceptance for that piece of equipment, and therefor
make it a violation of the Licensing Conditions as specified on the
Station License granted by the FCC.


Hey, Bruce, things have changed since the days when we looked for the
FCC Form 452-C on each transmitter (a tag stating the name of the
licensee and the call sign of the station that it was licensed under).
Quite a while back, the FCC changed the level for Land Mobile (and
other services') transmitters from "Type Acceptance" to
"Certification" meaning that the manufacturers need not send the test
data to the FCC and wait for the Type Acceptance to be issued but can
self-test and certify that it meets specs, with test data made
available if there is a question. This was because the industry
complained that it was taking too long to process Type Acceptance
applications, and the Commish' took the easy way out and changed the
level rather than to do what should have been done, namely hire more
examiners to make the process more timely.

Oh, the requirement for the 452-C is gone as well. More
"privatization"....

In article om,

"Type Accepted" (or "Type Acceptance") is an outdated term, replaced
in FCC regs with the term "Certificated".



While the term may have been purged from the R&R, I have seen it in
the current question pool for commercial licenses. Element 1 has a
question (#12) that reads:

Q: "What is a requirement of all marine transmitting apparatus used
aboard United States vessels?"

A: "Only equipment that has been type accepted by the FCC for Part 80
operations is authorized."

A while back I purchased an Icom V8000 with the mars cap conversion
(136-174 mHZ) to use as a business band radio. Although the PTT gives me
trouble now and then.... I really like the radio and i was thinking of
getting one for the house to use as a base.... the Icom PS125 compatable
with the V8000?

JD



Well............ Im not one for ruffling the FCC's feathers..... so I wont
operate on the business band with my Icom V8000 ;-) .....Is there an online
study guide where a person can obtain the information required to get a ham
license?

Some of these are not online study guides, but instead old fashioned
paper books:

Type Acceptance is still required for Marine equipment, as is a
General Radiotelephone Operator License to repair and adjust same.

We were discussing Land Mobile equipment, where the level of equipment
certification was reduced from Type Accepted to Certificated several
years ago, as was deletion of the requirement for a commercial license
to repair or adjust same
