12w in SSB CB Radio
« on: August 12, 2012, 15:06:38 PM »
Hi

Does anyone know where you can get a CB radio that can broadcast in SSB 12watts, or are CB radio still limited to 4watts even on SSB?? If so, does anyone know when the http://ecbf.eu/ will make it legal?

Thanks

Oh who cares if it is 12 or more watts if SSB is not allowed in ROI anyways.

Wow! So now Jackson II is fully legal rig here ha ha! Good.

As far as I remember CE compliant & certified rigs with AM/FM/SSB 4/12W are

Alan Midland 8001 Euro
Albrecht AE5800
President Jackson II

and probably base station Albrecht AE-497 (not the 10m version, but the difference I believe is only on the printed name outside and jumpers config inside) but haven't see this offered in official shops as a "legal" CB station.

Of course there's a plenty of other 4/12w compliant rigs and 10/25 watt (or more) so called "exports" (I have some of them ...:) ) but if you really want to stick with 4/12 thing and still owe (quite) legal CB radio then try to get one of Galaxy's DX 2547.

This is one of those little things I'd really like to put at my desk.

Well it still has to be type-approved 'legal' equipment for the 40-channels here in Ireland.
But yes, 12W/SSB on those 40 channels is legal now...

Prezzie II is CE approved so it should be regarded as legal rig in IE. I remember that some countries code were making it "legal" disabling SSB facility :D. You dig it? An 300++ eur rig with AM/FM (or even FM alone) 4w only. What a disgrace!

Not to mention that Jackson II is a half a failure without a frequency read out and strange 40's after "unlocking". Or they fixed that by now? Personally I do not like the things kept in between. Such a praised and well featured rig without a freq readout is just a mistake. It would be a much better to make a Jackson II with all the bells and whistles missing in Jackson I and release - say - President Obama ;) - an SSB AM FM rig with a very limited number of knobs and display channel only, not expandable and in a smaller box, comparable to Uniden 510 and the likes. And show to the world that Yes we can (do SSB) with this thing.

Seriously, with a nowadays technology it is not an mission impossible to design (or even redesign older) rig to make it fit a small, compact box instead of standard "export" cupboard-sized enclosure. And remote panel would make it even better - as those ones Albrecht AE6890 rigs.

By the way, updated AE5800 now is being sold as Albrecht AE5890EU and 8001z now is Midland-8001XT. Would be nice if the producers could introduce something new really...

At Hillwalking Radio, we had bad experience with the Intek. We purchased two PMR sets from different suppliers. The audio was very weak on both the transmitt and recieve side on both sets. it was so poor that we got rid of the sets straight away. A friend of mine who purchased a few Intek 40ch cb sets definately would not sell them again...now it could be a once off but I'd hate someone to waist their money. Also reviews should be taken with a grain of salt. Usually the person giving the review has some commercial interest or is after getting a freebe!..For egs when antennas are advertised, it's always in the supplier's interest to add on at least two db gain to try and out sell the nearest model............
