note: Regarding Plantronics CA12CD RF Power Output

The maximum RF power output for both the base and the remote it is +4dBm. It is recommended by Plantronics to have the bases at least 8-10 feet apart from each other for best results. In the US, the UPCS frequency spectrum (1.92mHZ to 1.93mHz) has been allocated by the FCC for use by unlicensed personal communications devices. The FCC, on the other hand, has NOT allocated the DECT frequency spectrum (1.88mHz to 1.90mHz) for this use. As a result, the DECT frequency spectrum cannot be used in the US for unlicensed personal communication devices because their operation can interfere with, with other RF devices operating within this spectrum.
