LMCC Praises FCC Enforcement Advisory on VHF/UHF Radios

The Land Mobile Communications Council today welcomed an enforcement advisory released by the FCC this week related to VHF/UHF radios that fail to comply with the FCC’s rules (TR Daily, Sept. 24). LMCC noted that it has worked to raise awareness of the distribution of illegal devices that can cause interference to federal, public safety, and business/industrial licensees.  “The members of the LMCC, which all have a stake in protecting the authorized use of spectrum, applaud the action taken by the FCC in this matter,” said LMCC President David Smith. “As the Advisory makes clear, violating these rules can result in substantial monetary fines. Anyone importing, advertising or selling noncompliant devices should cease doing so. Anyone owning such devices should stop using them. The LMCC encourages the Enforcement Bureau to follow this Advisory with swift enforcement of those who continue to violate these established rules.”
