Please say you are joking.

Considering how many of these migrated to 11 Meters,
I say the FCC should go after the low life bastids who sold these to Chicken Banders at Hamfest swaps in the 70's and 80's.

>>> And while we're at it, let's go after the folks who sold these <<<

I say hang 'em by their tetrodes.

I have hardly seen either at hamfests lately. They seems to hold their popularity and people do not give them up.

I like my freedom.  And, I respect that of others.  Free to own any radio gear, just obey the rules with respect to its operation.

I've even purchased what could have been meant to be an illegal CB amplifier (if used on 27MHz) at a Florida swapmeet.  Just to see how it was designed.  Some time, I'll adapt it to one or more amateur bands when I get around to it.

We have few experimenters and builders left in ham radio.  Constructing amplifiers and using them within FCC regulations for amateur radio should be encouraged, not mocked.  We occasionally laugh at the antics of CBers, which are funny a good deal of the time.  Except when they show up and have duels and such (a few years ago in FL).

Let's spend our time operating and experimenting productively, setting a good example.  Not pursuing vigilante law enforcement.

The way I look at CB is that band is their own little fenced in yard or prison

but they don't stay there and are causing QRM in the cw end of 10m. It makes working 10m cw miserable sometimes. After all, who uses AM these days except for these idiots.

What about the QRM that is caused by operators running very high ALC levels combined with very high compression ratio going into an Amplifier for that ever elusive
"PUNCH" that will bust that PILEUP?
On contest days, phew! all bets are off, anything goes.
BTW, these are Amateur Radio Operators with a ticket from the FCC.
The subject of running over 1500 watts is for another day!

hi,

Right, the FCC has no jurisdiction in other countries but
they do have rules on importing these amplifiers into the USA.

Limited resources and too many rule breakers for them to deal with.

An analogy always helps us understand.  Let's see, to build a fire you need fuel, oxygen, and an ignition source.  And, some common sense, including where and where not to start one.

Then again, let's prosecute the local wood cutter for selling firewood.  And, while we're at it, the five and dime for selling matches.  And, finally, God for supplying the oxygen.
