    Here is a recent notice of unlicensed operation for a cell phone amplifier installed at someones house. I've bolded the important parts.

    Really, this guy is lucky he was only issued a NOUO, he won't get hit with a monetary fine unless he fails to obtain authorization from the carrier or he doesn't take the unit off the air within 10 days.

    Would love to know what device he was using . Was it a FCC approved device ? ( not that it means anything ) Was the unit supposed to have built in safeguards? Was it an illegal device you can pick up on EBAY ?

    Yeah, agreed. It would be nice to know the extra details, I did find out that the unit went into self oscillation which was cause of the of the interference. Thankfully a lot of the higher end units are designed to avoid that.
