| Is there a web based reference of this ruling as it was not
| mentioned in the training I took for my technician license?
The training you took was probably keyed towards the technician test,
and the test comes from a relatively small test bank, and only a small
portion of the test actually covers the regulations. The training
probably only covered the parts of the regulations that are on the
test -- basically, just the highlights.
I recall seeing a thread on something like rcgroups where they'd
gotten the offcial word on this from the FCC itself, but this post
gives the gist of the regulation from the ARRL. Not that the ARRL is
the FCC, but they generally have a pretty good idea of what the FCC
regulations are ...
