Subject: [Discuss-gnuradio] FCC adopts Report and Order on cognitive radio
Date: Thu, 10 Mar 2005 13:52:23 -0800
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.6+20040907i

The FCC adopted an item on cognitive radios and software defined
radios at Michael Powell's final open Commission meeting this morning;
the item is FCC 05-57 in ET Docket No. 03-108.  No text is released yet.

Press release:


"In this item, the Commission modified and clarified certain
authorization requirements for software defined and cognitive radios
to facilitate the development of these technologies.  It required that
radios that incorporate software designed to be, or expected to be,
modified by a party other than the manufacturer provide reasonable
security measures to prevent unauthorized software modifications that
would either affect the RF operating parameters directly or otherwise
indirectly affect the cirumstances under which the transmitter
operates in accordance with Commission rules.

[...] It also clarified the rules to permit manufacturers to market
radios that have the hardware-based capability to transmit outside
authorized United States frequency bands, but required software
controls to limit operation to authorized frequency bands when used in
the United States."

Here's the NPRM in this docket from the end of 2003 (in response to
which this Report and Order was adopted):
