Now, in my world that is what "traceable" means. But what the hell do I know...I've only been doing this for 35 years. When I started this we would routinely check frequency monitors (remember those?) against WWV. Handheld frequency counters were a decade away and accurate ones rarely left the lab. Most of today's modern transmitters are more stable than the measurement equipment was in the 1970s.
You're the one who introduced certificates and lab tests into this.
Good to see you here but you need to know this is not a place for arguing word semantics. As the logo says, it's "a forum for the people who get it done".
That's generally great advice, Mark, though it's hard for me to understand how to avoid semantics on a sub-board specifically devoted to the discussion of written FCC Rules and how to interpret them. Isn't that, by definition, "semantics"?
Congratulations on your 35 years of late night calls and ruined holidays. I will celebrate my 36th year of that this summer myself.
Sounds like we're on the same page. Here's to getting it done.
