FoI to Ofcom on high power CB linears.

Postby m0lsx » Sun Sep 16, 2018 9:47 am

When Peter Sampson asked Ofcom if they'd do anything about CB users running 34 times permit power level Ofcom replied "it is not considered to be a proportionate use of resources"

Radio amateur Peter Sampson's Freedom of Information request read:

"when is someone going to jump on cb operators using massive linear amplifiers unchecked, some cbers near me push out 400w regularly (most nights)"

Ofcom replied:

CB users share a frequency band managed by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) who are the ‘primary users’ and must be prepared to accept incoming interference caused by the MOD. The use of CB is authorised on a 'non-interference, non-protected' basis; that is, it shall not cause harmful interference to, and shall not claim protection from other sources of interference.

Accordingly it is not considered to be a proportionate use of resources or otherwise in the public interest to investigate your complaint.

I appreciate that this is not the response that you were hoping for, however, I will remind you that there are now 80 CB channels available in the UK.

So CB is a free for all. Do what you want with Ofcoms blessing.
