Yeah, that is what you really need to do. Get something started with some CB'ers. It is not unlikely that you would end up with a 3CX10,000 coming back at you.
And, I did not say it was OK. Just that it is not a big deal and never has been. Never will be.
And, there are plenty of CB'ers around that use the amps we run for drivers.
Start your war.
I suspect you can from CB and ought to go back and enjoy it. Why be part of ham radio when all you can do is bash it? A 3 by 10, don't make me laugh.
