I'm neither an electronics engineer nor a lawyer, but I found Mr. Zook's 
message to be interesting. I think, maybe, he was just trying to make the 
point that these radios may have been "certificated" (can I now use that 
word in Scrabble?) by the lawyers and not be anyone in the FCC who knows 
technology. That seems to actually be in line with Mr. Bradford's comment 
that the FCC would not "consciously" allow such radios to be certificated. I 
assume that a conscientious (and "conscious") certification process would 
involve both technicians and lawyers.
