Are CB radios legal to use when driving?
Usually, yes. However, some jurisdictions do treat them the same way they do with using cell phones while driving.
Jamming CB Radios CB radios are AM radios that operate in a very narrow band: 26.965 to 27.405 MHz. Because they are amplitude modulated, it's possible to interfere -- or "jam" -- them with just about anything that generates broadband noise in their 440 KHz range. Doing so purposely, however, is a violation of federal law. it is also a violation of federal law for a CB radio to interfere with other electronics
A CB radio is a two-way radio. The radio transmits directly to another radio, and receives transmissions directly from other radios, and it's all done on the same frequency. While this is often erroneously referred to as simplex transmission, it is actually what's know as half duplex transmission. CB radios can only communicate with other radios which are on the same bandwidth. Hence, the receiving radio must also be a CB radio. There are base…
The Connex radios are not CB radios - they're 10 metre ham radios. ==================================== The 4300-300 is a ten metre radio. The fact that it can put out 300 watts out of the box should be enough to indicate this if you haven't actually dealt with them. The FCC legal limit for an 11 metre radio is four watts on AM, and 12 watts on Single Sideband.
