    For all practical purposes, the FCC went out of the enforcement business after 1996, when the Field Operations Bureau (FOB) was disbanded, save for a certain tiny number of safety-of-life situations. This no doubt accounts for the flood of illegal and modified radio communications equipment which can be found at trucker/CB shops and at almost any flea market. Said equipment has been sold in the open for years now, with no fear of any enforcement action. With deer season in full swing, the local flea markets are overflowing with all types of radio communications equipment, capable of transmitting on any frequency.

    There's another thread about out-of-band (OOB) intruders operating both in and outside ham bands. OOB intruders can be found most commonly in the 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8 mHz bands. Prior to 1996, the FOB aggressively hunted down and identified OOB intruders. All OOB intruder enforcement ceased in 1996, which is why OOB intruders are very common and are growing in numbers.

    Hams dream about a miraculous resurrection of FOB. Truth is it ain't never gonna happen.

    Gov't efficiency strikes again!

    Funny. You cited that from 97.113 (e). The other day, I cited it from 97.115
    (e). Thinking I had misread, I jsut looked at the pdf again.

    Sure enough, there's a 'misprint' in the portable document. 97.115 is where there should be 97.113. Time to check for a new, updated version. :D

    Well, look, it's not that complicated. The difference between 2 meters and 11 meters is only 9 meters. So just pry the cover off that thing and snip enough diodes to make up the difference. And somewhere in there, there must be a switch or jumper to switch between FM and AM.

    And I have Ruger MkII .22 semiauto pistol that I'd like to convert into a 44 Magnum revolver.

    Why not use a FT857 or 897 HF 6 2 70 will work on 27MHz, Although I've never bothered to

    Fire-up up that Tweaked, Peaked and Freaked beauty you just bought off some craigslist guy for $300. He told you he "was getting 200 smacking watts out of that mofo".

    Hook that baby up to a Peaked out Skull Cracka -DEATH- edition, hook it up to your whip and you'll be heard 100 miles away!!

    (you may not be understood though, but will get the attention of some important people!)

    It simply sounds like someone is trying to start sum'pin with this. There is NO such thing as a "dual use" radio in the context in which the poster has asked.

    You need to use a legal amateur radio for amateur radio and a legal, 40 channel CB for CB. If people would BOTHER to READ the rules of BOTH services instead of memorizing 50 questions just to "get by", this wouldn't be an issue. :mad: Sorry, that's just how I feel. No flames necessary.
