LICENSES

Confused about why were allowed to do all this? If your question is
not here, try looking through all of the questions which are listed on
TheEvolvingFAQ [4].

-------------------------

IS THIS LEGAL? DON\'T YOU NEED A CARRIER\'S LICENSE?

AS FAR AS WE KNOW, YES IT\'S LEGAL, AND NO WE DON\'T NEED A CARRIER
LICENSE.

The devices themselves have what is known as a "class license",
meaning that as long as they abide by the rules when they are
manufactured, they are deemed to be legal for use in Australia.

2.4Ghz is a unlicensed spectrum band, and we are a non-commercial
group. See this ACAAC, AVA, AA, CA, AKA, AAA, ACT, ABA, AMA, ADA, ALA, ANA, ARA, ASA, RCA, ACE, AHA, AC'S questionnaire:
