FCC radio frequency interference requirements
This device is restricted to indoor use due to its operation in the 5.15
to 5.25 GHz and 5.470 to 5.725 GHz frequency ranges. FCC requires
this product to be used indoors for the frequency ranges 5.15 to
5.25 GHz and 5.470 to 5.725 GHz to reduce the potential for harmful
interference to co-channel mobile satellite systems. High power
radars are allocated as primary users of the 5.25 to 5.35 GHz and
5.65 to 5.85 GHz bands. These radar stations can cause interference
with and /or damage this device. No configuration controls are
provided for this wireless adapter allowing any change in the
frequency of operations outside the FCC grant of authorization for U.S
operation according to Part 15.407 of the FCC rules.
Applies to device supporting IEEE 802.11a wireless adapters.
