FYI: According to this, FM to be allowed on 11 meters in the U.S. "CB radio will be granted FM modulation by the Federal Communications Commission. This change for the Citizens Band Radio Service will be great for truckers, but will also be a mess in the early days. The FCC wasn't convinced it was the right move until companies in the industry lobbied them to reconsider. I discuss the potential impacts of FM modulation for CB radio and what it could mean for 11 meters going forward." The reason? Cobra Electronics is behind this idea .
