Before I close this down, why not make it an educational thread? Someone PLEASE post the exact FCC regulation that says you cannot modify a rig designed for use on one frequency and use it on another, AS LONG as the use on the "modified" frequency is legal? In other words, is there ANY law that says I can't take a CB rig and use it on 10 meters, as long as I am licensed to use the frequency I am operating on? Last time I checked, the FCC says you must be licensed to use a transmitter on the frequency you are transmitting on. I'm a pilot and I'm licensed to transmit on certain aircraft frequencies. Who cares if I modify a 2-meter rig to work on those frequencies? AS LONG as I'm legal to transmit on that frequency, seems OK to me. Now, the manufacturer might not like it . . . but that's a different problem. Anyone?
