WWB also allows you to put in your zip code and it will block out the respective TV channels known ( at the time of the update ) to that area.

Not relevant to the [expanded] STL band.

If one were to inadvertently interfere with TV band operations in VHF or UHF, a 250 mW part 74 TX might cause problems for a few dozen viewers.  If one interferes with 941-960 MHz ops, it can take an entire station off the air for 100k+ viewers/listeners or interrupt data connections for an entire region.  Very, very serious stuff.

I feel like that would make people unhappy. A LOT of people.  As an A1 i have learned that making a LOT of people unhappy is undesirable.  Makes sense that that would also carry over to RF tech.  :)

Great info.  Thanks again!

Don't assume that your event frequency coordinator knows these details, and for the love of God don't assume that someone else's license covers your X55 ops.

The person who transmits the signal is the operator and is ultimately responsible [you (or the company directly employing you)], and requires an appropriate call sign.

Ask your RF coordinator to copy you on all SBE emails and raise Hell if you don't personally see a specific approval before you transmit.

Trust, but verify.  Always a good policy.

Including if I recall quite a bit of medical telemetry gear operates in that region.  You could wipe out a nearby hospital wireless cardiac monitors.
