I don't know about Kickstater. Personaly, I don't like the idear of going public for funds. I'm the more-in person type. I'm waiting to hear from a Grant. But if they think I'm going to give 2/3 away to an university there dreaming... When I was younger I was like a Junior Seti. So I have to ask... Is this a "legal" Mod your doing ? You don't want to up-set the men in black suits. Heres one that operate's out of this world.
Like Miguel mentioned, the top portion of the CELLv1.0 or rather the "cellular board" portion is what has the SIM card, cellular module, power regulator, and is what is going to be certified, so no men in black suits.
Besides, that doesn't really happen with people playing with cellular boards - only if you take a gps/radar jammer to an airport are you going to see that type of thing.
What is that picture you posted?
I'm out of my water here. I fear it would be called a external device, section 15.37(f) of sorts. So, why not CDMA2000 ? GSM ? Will you make other boards for those ? Isn't Japan on #9 1,700MHz ? You have #1, #2, #8 Bands. Are you doing a 20MHz band-with on 3G ? or a 5MHz. Your 2G should be 1,25MHZ band-with. Do you test your saturation conditions and over modulations ? You do know you can get a fine for not offering hearing aid compatible units $30,000. Here's some WCDMA/FCC info.
UMTS/WCDMA - Universal Mobile Telephone System/Wide Band Code Division Multiple Access
WCDMA or UMTS – as it is called throughout Europe – is a standard which has been developed to accommodate higher data rates of up to 2 Mbps to allow features like internet surfing, video telephony or video download. Even though WCDMA is focusing on high data rates it still supports simple features like a plain voice call or sending of SMS.
The following table lists some of the service profile, the required data rate, whether this is circuit switched or packet data and example applications:
Technology in brief
WCDMA is a CDMA system. CDMA stands for code division multiple access. This means that the available frequency channel is broken down by different code sequences that are multiplied by the user signals of the individual subscribers. All subscribers transmit on the same frequency and at the same time.
For WCDMA different base stations are distinguished by a different scrambling code, which makes cell planning a lot easier, since neighboring cells can re-use the same frequency! (However, the occupied "SNR" – or Signal to Noise Ratio is the limiting factor and characteristic for CDMA)
The data rate used by a terminal depends on spreading factor assigned to this particular terminal. If several terminals use the same spreading factor, the signals are distinguished through different code channels. At present the maximum data rate is 384 kbps. In the future it will be possible to combine several code channels to a multi-code link, allowing data rates up to 2 Mbps. However, when this is used the capacity of this frequency channel is used up, i.e. no other terminal can operate on this frequency channel. The reason for this is that there is no more "SNR" left for additional connections. This is the capacity issue indicated above.
In order to address higher data rates high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) has been introduced into Release 5 of the WCDMA (3GPP) standard. HSDPA allows data rates of up to 10 Mbps (and 20 Mbps for Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) systems) and is based on 16-QAM modulation. As the name suggests HSDPA is only available in the downlink direction, i.e. ideal for loading large Emails, surf the web or download videos.

I'm a little lost on why you posted all that information - could you clarify what you're pointing at?
The CELLv1.0 is meant for worldwide operation and thus, GSM is available in the majority of the world. Within the US, we wanted to provide superior coverage and since AT&T is dropping 2G, we wanted to be able to support 3G and thus not lose anything for decades.
Anything more like 4G is much more bulky and expensive so we think we found a sweet spot with this device.
AUDIO - for E911 or hearing aids, this is a data only module, so no audio issues - we can sidestep that testing and responsibility. You can still do audio through like an ADC function with the Pi, and others have been discussing libraries to do that.
BW - Keep in mind we're using a cellular module, so it gets away from having to go down into the details of all the channel and other lower level fun.
I sent a friend requset so I can ask you a question by sending you a message right here where it is more private. I will make my question a mutable choice A -E so I wont take up much of your time. Then I will answer your questions. Look for my friend request in the upper right OK.
Wierd, I didn't see one so I sent one your way.
If it's something the community would like to see, you can feel free to post it here. Otherwise, let me know!
You have mail
YOU HAVE MAIL, HAVE A NICE DAY.
I sent a friend request. If you OK it I can send you mail to your box here. Like Vincent there are things I don't wish to make public. Its not good for you or me. I do this out of respect to your project. I sent to Chris. I thought he was working with you. Shannon.
