Operation and warranty of the radio equipment
Please consider, that generally the operation of the ham radio transceivers does not include operation outside the amateur radio bands, thus the warranty covers only the failures resulting from the intended use. Using the ham radio equipment outside of the radio amateur bands, failure caused by poor quality coaxial cable or antenna, natural forces, lightning strike, or its side effects (static discharges, etc.), are considered misuse of the equipment. The operation of a transmitter requires a proper licensing. Using the equipment without a valid license is against the law. For licensing please contact the telecommunication authority of your country.
The specifications of radio amateur equipment is only guaranteed within the amateur bands, and these specifications are understood with +/- 10% of tolerance. The specifications can deteriorate outside the amateur band, which is no ground for any complaints. Without a separate license, the use of the transmitter of the amateur radio equipment outside the amateur bands (transmitting out of band) is prohibited (the amateur radio license is not valid for that). The user or operator of the equipment has full responsibility for its consequences.
