    I'm not sure how often you scroll down to the bottom of the page here on QRZ but I just saw something I couldn't believe. Now, I understand how 'Ads by Google' work, but I guess the advertiser shown has sunk to a whole new level. Either that, or they can't distinguish between amateur radio and CB.


    I just went to Hamsphere and I can't find any reference to CB.

    I was hesitant to post this, but thought I'd share the humor. :rolleyes:

    I use the Firefox ad block plug in so I don't see the ads, but when I did I was amazed at what I would see there from time to time.

    I actually like the ads, and I even click on them from time to time when something strikes me. Even when I was a subscriber, I had the ads enabled.

    From the ad, I'm guessing that Hamsphere has found a whole new demographic. It looks like they cut that virtual blue wire to "open up" the virtual radio to virtually transmit on virtual 11 meters.

    Strangely enough, this actually makes a lot of sense. When the novelty of pretending to use the radio wears off, I suppose it might actually add a little bit of excitement if you can also pretend that you're breaking the law.

    Why not?
    Just as illegal as the other stuff that goes on there.

    Not to be "that guy", but I guess I am. Would it be illegal to run an echolink-like network on 11 meter? I would guess so, since there aren't even 11 meter repeaters in the US.

    You cannot run any emission other than AM and SSB, all other emissions are illegal on the US Class D CB band.
