Right...  I can't see the FCC do this as there is so much money and
politics preventing that.  They could try to do what the FCC did
with radios that can receive Cellular freqs, by limiting sales to
"professional" folks and organizations.

Fortunately, all the "restricted" can be harvest from obsolete consumer gear, for example cable modems, at least for building receivers. They would have to ban down converters and all RF kits. Nahhh.
