Enforcement Advisory No. 2018-03
TWO-WAY VHF/UHF RADIOS MAY NOT BE IMPORTED,
ADVERTISED, OR SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES UNLESS
THEY COMPLY WITH THE COMMISSION’S RULES
The Enforcement Bureau (Bureau) of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has observed that a growing number of conventional retailers and websites advertise and sell low-cost, two-way VHF/UHF radios that do not comply with the FCC’s rules. Such devices are used primarily for short-distance, two-way voice communications and are frequently imported into the United States. These radios must be authorized by the FCC prior to being imported, advertised, sold, or operated in the United States.
