On October 25, 2000, the Commission further amended the rule so that it
applies to customer-end antennas that receive and transmit fixed wireless
signals. This amendment became effective on May 25, 2001.
Q: What are "fixed wireless signals"?

A: "Fixed wireless signals" are any commercial non-broadcast
communications signals transmitted via wireless technology to and/or from
a fixed customer location. Examples include wireless signals used to
provide telephone service or high-speed Internet access to a fixed
location. This definition does not include, among other things, AM/FM
radio, amateur ("HAM") radio, Citizens Band ("CB") radio, and Digital
Audio Radio Services ("DARS") signals.

The text itself is here:

I tend to agree with Peter on that one (although none of us is pretending
to provide any kind of legal or other advice in any form, in case somebody
asks). There's a number to call the FCC on the first page I mentioned. ;)
