It is a moot point, because hacking the board on your own, is not breaking any regulations. Heathkit used to sell everything from breadboard breakout kits to Ham Radio Equipment, TV's and computers. The manufacturer that had the original board made, only have to live up to the rules for the FCC filing. The consumer can do what they want with that SBC, they just need to know that if they cause problems and get some Ham Radio operator next to them reporting interference as what happened with some Plasma TV's, you would only get a cease request by the Ham Radio operator if they can prove how the leakage happened.AllanGH wrote: ↑Mon Nov 06, 2017 9:12 pmFor those interested in the certification application documents, please refer to the following link:

All of this crying that it is illegal for what the OP is thinking about, the answer is that it is not illegal, because they are just looking at a idea of making the Pi to have a better wifi reception and would be no different than taking a desktop or laptop and hooking up a external antenna to a wifi card and placing that antenna where you get a better signal.
So the moral to the story boys and girls is, there is zero liability for what the OP wants to do, because it breaks zero laws.
