Remote control fish-bite indicator on frequency of Ministry of Defence

(Prague, November 26, 2015) Inspection primarily focused on remote control devices for fishermen, namely on fish-bite indicators with listening-in transmitter, was carried out based on consumers’ submissions and later covered also fish-bite indicators without listening-in transmitter. In total 119 types of products were inspected. Flaws were detected concerning both accompanying documentation and marking of products, including CE marking. Within inspections of transmission frequency, inspectors detected that one device was set on frequency reserved for the Ministry of Defence. “Consumers should be interested also in the transmission frequency of remote control products because the sanction threat from the Czech Telecommunication Office is posed not only to traders, but also users of devices operated on different than permitted frequency. Fines could amount up to a million CZK,” notes Jan Štěpánek, the Director of the CTIA Inspectorate for the Central Bohemia Region and the Capital of Prague.
