 Is Ebay breaking any FCC rules by selling CB amps? Just curious.

##  as long as they are listed as  10m amps  or  12m amps..or  10/12 m
amps..or  10+12m amps.. there is no problem.   They just list em as monoband
ham amps.  Riley H  said he gave up on the 11m band  [ that was in qst a long 
while back].
The FCC can't enforce anything on 11m, they don't have the resources or man 
power required
to do the job. 

##  QST did a wonderful review of the 10/12M ranger xcvr years ago.  It came in 
2 x versions,
25 w  and 150w output  [with lousy TX imd].  QST stated it was wonderful they 
included LSB..
so the xcvr could be used on rtty !   Of course they also worked on AM.. [ and 
I think FM] as 
well.   Dunno if they had a CW key jack or not.  Very simple mod...and they 
would TX/RX  from
24.890-30.000 mhz.    That xcvr was clearly aimed at the 11m  market.  The ARRL 
 played a large part
in promoting the xcvr's  success in the 11m market. 

##  Even if E-bay  did something abt it... they would just advertise else 
where..and probably do. 

later... Jim  VE7RF
