A 100mw regulation for ground work is a pure joke.Carl-NC said:"If anyone knows about FCC regulations that apply to metal detectors,
I'd appreciate a link... "
There are no FCC regs that apply specifically to metal detectors. The old "100mW" limit is a myth. Detector coils are horribly inefficient "antennas" and do not support far-field EM transmission.
Detectors do have to meet the "unintentional radiator" limits that all electronics must meet, and that is largely self-regulated. Read through FCC 47 CFR Part 15 for the gory details.
