The excellent Southgate News page reports that SSB and AM is now legal on UK CB from June 27th 2014.
I have only briefly operated on CB many years ago and was very disappointed. I suppose 12W pep of SSB will greatly increase the DX potential on CB. AM is also legal.
We need to watch out for more reports of TVI and hi-fi breakthrough as FM, especially at 4W legal limit, is rarely a problem whereas SSB and AM make such issues more probable. Of course, some CBers like to use (illegal) add-on amplifiers making matters worse.
I don’t think this move will encourage me onto CB any time soon, but it may result in lower cost 10m rigs.
UPDATE 2015z: Nevada are now selling the President Lincoln 2 (3rd improved version of this model) covering 10m only (as sold – but expandable illegally to cover CB bands) with a £10 discount.
