Digest Number 2
Good idea-- However the search was zero...
One comment was could they hide it???
Answer is NO... It is all of public record. In fact in their submission they have to provide a copy of the manual in addition to the lab test data and photo's of the test setup etc...
Here is a sample of what you can find -- this being the IC-756 PROIII

Subject: FCC approval
Has anyone searched the FCC website for documents
concerning the approval cycle required by the FCC for
type acceptance or whatever they call it. This
process takes several months and must be done prior to
US marketing. The problem is knowing what ICOM called
the 7000 when they submitted it to the FCC. It could
be under a code name.
