Product FCC Licensing (USA)
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates most forms of electronic transmission in the United States, including two-way radio, and wireless. All of these require licensing of some sort come pursuant to criteria determined by the FCC and legislators. While most licensed operators qualify under commercial use, individuals may also require FCC approval of ham and two-way radio even if transmission occurs for personal use. All UHF transmission needs a license, while VHF stations with more than 250 watts also require a permit.
Any communications occurring within the United States and its possessions may be subject to FCC regulation, in addition to international transmission that passes through, begins or ends in the U.S. This complies with the agency's mandate of preventing "hogging" of available bandwidth, enabling fair competition and promoting diversity of transmission. Transmitting without a license is a federal offense, and not knowing whether you required licensing to begin with can't be used as a defense. Processing times for applications vary, although most take a minimum of two weeks, so avoid deploying equipment before your license arrives.
