    :( You have my sympathy. The "CB'ers" I know (or thought I knew) have sworn off that service. Never to return once they got their amateur license.:rolleyes:

    But as said above, the amateur frequencies and allocations therein DO vary from country to country; they do not all use the U.S. (aka FCC) same band or allowable modes that apply to U.S. hams. What may be wrong (aka illegal) for U.S. hams, may well be perfectly legal for a ham in other countries. And THAT is what regulates THEM, not what is received in the U.S., or under the jurisdiction of the FCC.

    How can they be CB'ers if they are not on a CB channel ?

    Sounds more like Bootleggers. :rolleyes:

    Sounds like you got someone to talk to on 10M. Consider yourself lucky!

    Oh, come on. You know as well as I do that the Volunteer Monitors will be our salvation and the bands will be rapidly cleared of such evildoers now that the VM program is in place.

    There is a bridge close to me that is "sorta" usable. Want to buy it? Just kidding

    Correct! In fact, for the last two days I've been attending DNC meetings put on by the Feds. An FCC engineer gave briefs at both. Several voiced sentences in both FCC presentations detailed how their field offices, staffing and enforcement funds had markedly dwindled. They're doing the best they can...
