Um, 802.11 devices are, by definition, duplex. In other words, in order to actually establish a link, every node has to be both transmitting and receiving. One that acted as a receive only device wouldn't do anything useful (except to eavesdroppers). That said, violations of Part 15 rules are beyond the scope of the local PD, and the FCC is unlikely to pursue the matter unless they receive complaints of interference related to your transmissions.
