Buy THIS radio if you want to use CB, not the ones that are capable of illegally transmitting on the 10 meter band. (They don't even spell "amateur" correctly in the descriptions, frequently.) A $10,000 fine awaits you for illegally using 10 meters without an FCC Amateur Radio Operator/Station License. Many unfortunate folks have been fined by the Federal Government, who recently adopted a Zero-Tolerance-Post-9/11 approach to misuse of the radio spectrum. This radio is fully legal, useful, and fun for you to use, without risking criminal activity. Don't buy the General Lee Radio, which is totally illegal. They can't even list them on a well known auction website.
