Re: Speaking of CB....
The citizens band radio service falls under the umbrella of the Part 95 - not allowed to exceed 4 watts AM or 12 watts PEP SSB.
The Amateur Radio service, after 1958 - all amateur radio equipment - other then a approved MARS operator - is not allowed to operate on the 11 meters portion of the band, nor are they allowed to modify their transceiver so it will operate out of band. MARS is not a part of amateur radio - since it is Military Affiliated Radio Service and not conducted on the amateur bands.
At one time no new amplifiers were allowed to be designed to operate below 15 meters.. 2 meter amplifiers were excluded.
When you operate amateur radio equipment on non amateur radio frequencies - regardless of how much power output you use, you are illegal - since amateurs must identify with their call sign every 10 minutes and CB radio no longer uses or requires a call sign.
You risk penalties and loosing your license when you operate on 11 meters. All it would take would be for a O&O to hear you.
The world is small and getting smaller every day.....
There is a modification for most transceivers to use them out of frequency. It usually requires removing some type of blocking diode or resistor.
