Postby m0lsx » Tue Jun 17, 2014 8:12 pm

It looks like SSB CB may be about to become legal...

two different modes of operation for Citizens’ Band Radio.

These regulations will come into force on 27 June 2014.

SSB is legal as of the 27th of last month. But only on certain frequencies & at 12 watts.

Sorry Alan, I stand corrected, as an aside do you think this will be another nail in the coffin for amateur radio? Let's look at things honestly, how many CB'ers are going to stick with 12w pep? and just the 40 allocated freqs? I think 10 mtrs alone will have more pirates than Port Royal in the 17th century! What do you think?

I think there is a good chance it may bring in a few new amateurs into the hobby & with luck they will not have the language issues that some CB'ers seem to have or the desire to just talk for hours on repeaters.
And I kind of hope there might also be a double advantage to the new legalisation, as some ex CB'ers have clearly not been able to leave CB behind. And these guys might just decide to head back to CB simplex again, now that SSB is legal.
Also I am sure some amateurs will start using CB & if one radio can work both CB & 10 meters, then that could potentially have a good effect on 10 meters for us all. And I love the 10 meter repeaters..5 watts mobile chats via the NY repeater with a truck driver in Scotland or a Polish amateur is my kind of radio.lol

Edited to add, most of the 10 meter intruders are from the ex soviet block countries & I cannot see that changing. But if legal 10 meter activity does increase, then the pirates will get more interference & not be able to run their Taxi businesses when conditions are good. So it may move a few off 10 meters with luck. Plus of course a lot of UK CB'ers are amateurs too, so will probably only use above 28 mhz if using their legal callsign, so I do not see it making a big difference myself.
