I admire your attitude, but I assure you the FCC knows all about these
radios and amplifiers and is not interested in enforcing their own rules
except in egregious circumstances.

You might have better luck writing your congressman, but I'm not holding
my breath there either.

The underlying problem is that CB'ers vote too, and there are a LOT of
them out there.  Start a REAL crackdown and you can guess the
consequences at election time.  It's sad, but that's how politics works.
