                                 The Applicant has been cautioned as to the following:

15.21: Information to the User

The user’s manual or instruction manual for an intentional radiator shall caution the user that changes, or modifications
not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.


15.27(a): Special Accessories

Equipment marketed to a consumer must be capable of complying with the necessary regulations in the configuration in
which the equipment is marketed. Where special accessories, such as shielded cables and/or special connectors are
required to enable an unintentional or intentional radiator to comply with the emission limits in this part, the equipment
must be marketed with, i.e. shipped and sold with, those special accessories. However, in lieu of shipping or packaging
the special accessories with the unintentional or intentional radiator, the responsible party may employ other methods of
ensuring that the special accessories are provided to the consumer, without an additional charge.

Information detailing any alternative method used to supply the special accessories for a grant of equipment authorization
or retained in the verification records, as appropriate. The party responsible for the equipment, as detailed in § 2.909 of
this chapter, shall ensure that these special accessories are provided with the equipment. The instruction manual for such
devices shall include appropriate instructions on the first page of text concerned with the installation of the device that
these special accessories must be used with the device. It is the responsibility of the user to use the needed special
accessories supplied with the equipment.

Test and Measurement Data

All tests and measurement data shown were performed in accordance with FCC 47 CFR Parts 2 and 90.

Measurement results, unless otherwise noted, are worst-case measurements.


Standard Test Conditions and Engineering Practices

Except as noted herein, the following conditions and procedures were observed during the testing.

Unless otherwise indicated in the specific measurement results, the ambient temperature of the actual EUT was
maintained within the range of 10 to 40C (50 to 104 F) unless the particular equipment requirements specified testing over

                                                  Test Procedure

     The Method of Measurement was C63.26 5.2.4.3. The EUT was measured in a radiated configuration with the
                 manufacturer’s antenna attached. Emissions were maximized per C63.26 5.5.3.2.

                                           ERP was computed as follows:

                                         𝐹𝑆𝑃𝐿 = 20 log(𝐹) + 20 log(𝐷) − 27.5

                                     𝐸𝑅𝑃 (π‘‘π΅π‘š) = π‘ƒπ‘šπ‘’π‘Žπ‘  − 𝐺𝑅 + 𝐿𝐢 + 𝐹𝑆𝑃𝐿 − 2.15

                                                             𝐸𝑅𝑃 (π‘‘π΅π‘š)−30
                                              𝐸𝑅𝑃 (π‘Š) = 10         10


                                                        Where:
                                             F = emission frequency in MHz
                                          D = measurement distance in meters
                                   Pmeas = power measured at the spectrum analyzer
                                              GR = RX antenna gain in dBi
                                                LC = RX cable loss in dB

                                                 Test Procedure

   The Method of Measurement was C63.26 5.5.4, with no deviations. The EUT was modulated to produce maximum
     deviation. Emission masks were based on Transmitter Output Power data presented previously in this report.
