again, your application really doesn't matter. what matters is the *capability* of your "hardware or software."

That was *precisely* the point of my question. Doesn't merely having the capability also put the DSP-10 and the current Ten-Tec rigs beyond the pale? Perhaps the latest WinRadios as well?

yes, apparently. for some u.s. laws/regulations you don't need both the hardware and the software together to qualify as a violator: either one will do. again, it's unlikely to be enforced against you, but it's out there....

interestingly, government users are Winradio's biggest customers. they use proprietary software, of course.

here's another interesting piece of hardware and software that qualifies the possessor as a violator. doubtful this swiss company could do much business in the usa with non-govt customers. notice their source code is for sale..."to official government bodies only."
