    Actually , they are protected by Part 97.101 (d) ... and probably (a) also.
    Key word being "ANY"...........................[​IMG]

    §97.101 General standards.

    (a) In all respects not specifically covered by FCC Rules each amateur station must be operated in accordance with good engineering and good amateur practice.

    (b) Each station licensee and each control operator must cooperate in selecting transmitting channels and in making the most effective use of the amateur service frequencies. No frequency will be assigned for the exclusive use of any station.

    (c) At all times and on all frequencies, each control operator must give priority to stations providing emergency communications, except to stations transmitting communications for training drills and tests in RACES.

    (d) No amateur operator shall willfully or maliciously interfere with or cause interference to any radio communication or signal.

    I think we have been over this before. How do you interfere with a "radio communication or signal" that does not exist under FCC regulations. The FCC regulations are intended to protect legal communications. Unlicensed communications could take over the entire 10-meter band (or any other band) and you would be required to not interfere, I don't think so.

    Well they surely wouldn't be complaining :rolleyes:
    The best way to keep intruders off of ANY band is to use it. Right now "Well THEY don't talk on that band" would look like a pretty good defense for the CB guys.

    Yup, my apologies for getting caught up in all of the pissing and moaning. I missed the “plus”. At a glance I thought he meant USB. Btw, I don’t speak or type like that which may have contributed to my missing it. Why not just “10 Meters”?

    But the point remains. There is simply nothing you can do about it but complain. I guess you missed that point?

    I read this on QRZ a while back:
    'The frequencies on the "10 kc jumps" that occur after every fourth CB channel
    were originally set aside for radio controlled models and garage door openers.'

    There must have been some tricky crystal/mixer switching circuitry before PLL synths and microprocessors
    became common.

    I wonder why any CBers would bother with 10 meters when most of the CB channels are wide
    open. In Colorado, a lot of what little CB traffic exists is in Spanish. The Children's Band is now
    the Cartel Band ;-) Disclaimer: I'm sure most of the Spanish speakers are just regular guys.

    It's likely they don't know the difference and more than likely they don't care.

    There is only one thing that can be done to eliminate it once and for all....spin the dial

    Probably bought one of the "CBs" you can get off Amazon or FleaBay with "extra" channles and have no idea what is going on. Real freebanders are probably very well aware that going into 10 meters gets them unwanted attention. Also probably half of them are hams anyway :rolleyes:

    My 23 channel CB radios had a space on the dial between 22, and 23, and was always referred to as 22A, an RC channel. I can provide a photo for the non-believers. On the subject, with all of the dead air, I can't take seriously that someone would complain about the only activity received. If the bands were busy, this user would never have been discovered.
