Actually, why the original post? The fact that the FCC did something about a radio being imported for use in 47 CFR Part 95 radio services has absolutely nothing to do with the 47 CFR Part 97 Amateur Radio Service and, even more, with amateur satellites!

Your post has absolutely nothing to do with, well, anything to do with the original post.
A seres of radios get snuck in through the certification process that are non-compliant with well-esablished rules. If you have been in the commercial and amateur radio businesses for more than a decade, you KNOW the FCC would never allow a single rig to operate on MURS, FRS at more than 500mW, and GMRS - along with commercial freqs.
This is not a case of "bureaucracy" or "lawyers" gone wild.
