Hi there QRZers! o/ I am trying to find the FCC ID for the FT-840 and I have stumbled upon a doc that states that a number of HF transceivers in the 90s were exempted of FCC ID/grant if their TX frequency were below 30 MHz. Some other equipments like FT-1000, TS-870, a number of TenTecs and Icoms (see list below) are claimed to not having FCC ID due to this exemption. So my question here; is this indeed a thing or not? If it is true, what were the law/rule grounds back in day for such exemption? I appreciate. P.s.: Transceivers that would fall into this category: ICOM IC-707, IC-718, IC-725, IC-726, IC-728, IC729, IC-731, IC-732, IC-735,IC-736 IC737,IC-737A IC-738, IC-741, IC-745, IC-750, IC-750A, IC-751, IC-751A, IC-760, IC-761, IC-765, IC-775, IC-775DSP, IC-780 e IC-781.
