    If you have an amateur opperators licence (general class or better), can you use more than 5 watts on 11 meters?

    No, amateur radio licenses do not apply to CB operation.

    Amateur radio is amateur radio. CB is CB. There are no amateur radio privileges that apply to CB or vice versa.
    As far as regulations go they are mutually exclusive.
    It may seem to some that it is otherwise due to what some will do regardless of the regulations but it is not.

    No, but people often don't realize that CB is composed of both Class C and Class D services. Class C does allow 25 watts on one channel.

    As mentioned before... (repetition, I know!) An Amateur radio license does not award privileges on any other radio service. That includes, but not limited to CB, FRS, GMRS, Maritime HF, Business band or any other service you can think of. It only allows operation on ham bands.

    CB, has it's own set of rules, believe it or not, even though most denizens there ignore them. Power limits there are low for a reason.

    The only thing better than a General Class license is an Amateur Extra Class license!

    You don't have to go to 11 m for cb, just check the 2m band.....plenty there.

    With an amateur license you can use 16 watts peak on AM with a 23 channel radio or 12 watts peak on ssb.
