    You have an obligation to understand CFR 47 as it applies to Part 97.

    My opinion on the matter--and yours--is irrelevant.

    Analogous example: almost 10 years ago there was a huge problem with hand-held jammers being dumped in the US by PRC--specifically thru alibaba.com. They looked like HT's--with several duckies sticking out, and were sold as 'privacy bubbles' to stop adjacent cell phone use. Restaurants and theaters and people gobbled them up to stop those' annoying' calls in YOUR personal space. Hah!

    All illegal. Big fines on many users. Thousands and thousands trashed. No more 'privacy bubbles'.

    No one cares what you or I think. You have hardly made a compelling case for illegal use.

    Illegal is illegal. It is fatuous for you to try to engage me in argument over a position I did not produce. Go petition the FCC if you want...

    Yes, as a Part 97 licensee, your IC 7300 is illegal to use if you have modified it to transmit outside of Part 97 allocations.

    Sorry, you won't be able to 'play' freeband South American fishing vessel....

    Agreed, the letter of the law is the law. We are obligated to respect the rules and be responsible users of the spectrum allocated to us...
    Practicality, may or may not be another thing entirely. Certainly there will always be the full on scofflaw that will likely ruin it for everyone else.
    I don't believe that we have heard the last word on CRF 47 and the interpretations that have been publically stated FCC's own public information people.
    It is has become a pretty big issue on the verbage within the rule making. It was pretty much a non-issue until recently. The proliferation of HT's and every other form of illegal consumer devices masquerading as ham equipment has opened up a whole can of worms for the amateur radio community. My 7300 device is not Illegal due to the fact that it has been modified. I can operate it now on 60 meters or on several federal frequencies under license of MARS not to mention use on the regular ham bands that it already was capable.
    If it was not, it still could always be restored by any FCC licensed amateur as well as any licensed commercial service tech.

    Stop fantasizing exceptions. And READ my comments, don't pick out partial phrases to build a house of cards.

    Read Part 97 please.

    Thanks.

    China never made anything they didn’t steal from someone else. Plus, their products are inferior.

    What about the “MARS” radios? Playing the devils advocate, who in the he’ll belongs to MARS that their radios are always modded?

    Most can’t type in plain English or use proper grammar. It’s rather annoying reading some of the posts here. I’m talking about Americans, before anyone gets on their soapbox.
