Suprise! Guess they are going to find out the difference between Part 15 and Part 90!
"It took [the FCC] approximately eight months to send a response and they had generated a complaint instead of just providing a simple answer to that question which is what led to where we are today,"
A government agency took that long to respond? Gee there's a shocker!
If the residents were using Bushnell guns like the one they show on the news site, that is a part 15 gun and doesn't require a license to operate.
Even if they were using a part 90 gun, how would the FCC prove it? Unless the department told them what guns they were using. Since it sounds like it was a neighborhood committee that purchased the guns, they probably were part 15 guns such as a Bushnell.
If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!
If speed kills, how come I'm still alive?

The FCC is not going to bother these people. It took them 8 months to send a probably generic complaining letter. The most they will do is send a complaint if they feel they are violating some stupid law.
If the FCC doesn't touch RMR, I doubt they would fine a bunch of clowns with radar guns.
From the Police side I think they were getting fed up with the neighbors calling in all the time after they showed them how to use them. OR someone in the department said do what??? Yall showed them how to use those. Well if the FCC finds out you could get in trouble. So, they told the fcc and it is where it is now.
Hey FCC I am operating a radar gun. My ip is !
Who cares stupid law. The fine sucks though. Someone trying to do the right thing and someone rats em out.
8 months is actually not bad for teh Gov't.Originally Posted by JeepinJeff
