I hope that in the UK OfCom will take similar action.
Ok, they have a get-out clause:
**** The use and operation of this product in some countries may require a license based on local government restrictions. Ensure you check your local government rules before operating this device. ****
IANAL, but surely just writing that doesn’t make them compliant with the 25-mW limit for this category here (and Region 1 generally I suppose?).
Of course you can get considerably higher-powered VTX units by importing direct from China / HK, but then you are responsible for ensuring compliance. That might be Ok for us, with some technical knowledge, but your typical drone hobbyist will surely turn just the wick up until the snow on the video disappears.
I should add that I have been considering having a play with C-band analogue video within our allocation. A S2S attempt could be fun. But with TX firmly stood on the ground for sure.
However, losing the cheap import route for our purposes would be a small price to pay for removing these non-compliant transmitters from the general market.
