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!
