Bill, you can plug that number into the FCC's OET equipment authorization search page and view the complete certificate of compliance submitted by the testing lab. There are also internal/external M802 photo's, the RF exposure test and user manual. The M802 is only tested on the marine bands, not tested on the ham bands.

Iv'e used this site for many years. Depending on what the manufacturer wants to provide, you can sometimes find schematics and/or complete service manuals here. It can be a great source of info but sometimes they provide virtually nothing for public viewing.

Re: HAM, Marine SSB, Other?

Thanks, Eric. Very helpful.

It appears from the information on that site that the FCC certification for the M802 was issued in July 2002, and that it was for maritime use only.

I seem to recall that this radio was at some earlier point marketed with the flexibility to do both ham and marine actually touted. I've seen many references to this, including in the reviews section of QRZ.com. And, there can be little doubt that the design of this transceiver lends itself to much wider use than maritime only.

Maybe the designers and marketing folks got out ahead of the regulators? Or, for whatever reason Icom decided not to seek approval for multi-service use?

Probably so. Same goes for the advertised increased talk power via DSP speech compression which is not even enabled. The average power output of this radio is pitiful and considerably lower than the M710 but the M802 rocks with it enabled. Apparently, it will not pass emission testing with it enabled.

I had never seen the M802 advertised as ham capable by IcomAmerica. I do recall some user channels being programmed with ham freq's for receive only.

Re: Yaesu 600, etc., (I've been jumping links, so I hope I have placed this post in the right spot.)

The discussion has been interesting and I ran down a bit of info on the 600. I'm short of time so I'll pass this link on for others to explore:

https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/repor..._id=K66-600LMR

Perhaps a telephone call to FCC resources in DC will generate definitive info; put a bureaucrat to work.

No need, Roger. The bureaucrats have already done their work!

The link you provided IS the authorization under Parts 87 & 90.

End of the issue, IMO.
