Briefly, it status that you can't use a "hand held mobile telephone or a 
hand held device of a kind specified... [as] a device other than a two 
way radio which .. transmits and receives data", and gone on to specify 
a two way radio as a device operating on a ferequency other than the 
mobile phone bands.
