Europe to update radio equipment rules

Hello List,

On first inspection this doesn’t look like good news:

Press corner | European Commission

Anyone have any further insight or views?

It seems reasonable enough from the summary. For example, it’s not
possible for testing of USRP etc to prove that they won’t be used in a
way that interferes with other radio services, so each product (software

  • hardware) should be tested on its own merit for compliance (like it
    should be for EMC compliance, LVDS etc for CE marking in Europe).

R&TTE, like CE, always seems to have been dealt with reasonably without
putting undue burdens on competent and careful amateurs making products
for their own use, and is needed to make sure actual products don’t ruin
other people’s use of the spectrum.
