Likewise would repairing your own faulty ICOM or Yaesu gear not fall into the same category? Changing the PA's as an example could result in some nasty parasitics that could interfere with another EMER or ATC service etc and without have the work done in a certified repair shop or confirmed and certified by an advance amateur puts it in the homebrew category as well one would think.

In Canada the previous "pro-active cooperative resolution system" for RFI and other interference resolution has been removed from govt inspectors and thrown into the adversarial court  systems for settlements in worst case scenarios now; privatized to reduce inspector workloads that justified budget reductions. So it isn't the smooth process it once was. In the extreme it is possible a previously easily resolved issued could rapidly approach a D.A.R.F. on steriods situation. Something a noobie is not likely to welcome as experience in a new hobby they just want to enjoy.

I wondered the same thing, but apparently the ubitx falls under the "With Basic Qualification only, transmitting equipment must be either a commercial pre-assembled product or a packaged kit designated for amateur use". Seems a little grey to me too.
