After much reading and searching (but before I found this site) I purchased a 900mhz video TX/RX system on Ebay from one of the many Hong Kong sellers. The description on Ebay for the unit stated 4 channels as follows: 910Mhz, 950Mhz, 970Mhz and 990Mhz. I planned to use it only on 910Mhz to remain within the "safe" ISM band.
What I apparently got, after contacting some other sellers of what appears to be the same product, actually has some 15 channels with the lowest starting at 993Mhz and going up to 1280Mhz.
I assumed I was screwed as far as using it and this after taking the TX and RX apart to install in my open casings. In other words, no longer returnable. Then I found users on this site who are running their systems on 1280Mhz and I was hoping all is still not lost.
What's the deal with using 1280Mhz for video? This is within the ham radio band, correct? Are you getting licensed for this or just taking your chances? Has anyone had any trouble with the FCC? What kind of output power are you running?
Please... some guidance on this is much appreciated.
