Peter,

Probably need your amateur licence, before you can access some of that sort of gear. We'd all like more power!!!

Hooroo...

Hi,

You need an amateur licence not only to buy it, but to operate it.
And since 27Mhz isn't an amateur band, you can't operate there legally at high power even if you had a licence!
So, forget it.
Cheers

Peter
the Australian Communication Authority website (www.aca.gov.au) has some useful information on which amateur sets are easy to modify, how to do it, using linear amplifiers etc

Hi Peter,

Reading the mail I see your mate can get you an amateur rig, well if he is a ham he could loose his liecence for doing so.
Also read where ACA's web page tells how to modify rigs. I don't believe that, they do not allow it.
Remember we are at the bottom of a sunspot cycle,once it comes good conditions will improve.
Did you not see the Southern Auora last night ? (17th may)

PandJ, A ham is allowed to not only modify rigs but construct them as well as long as they stay within the ham bands and do not cause interference in fact that is that original basis of the hobby, experimentation in radio electronics, modes and signal propagation but there are a lot of black box operators these days and who can blame them. The inside of a fancy modern radio is pretty scary when faced with a problem. Still there's plently of other stuff in the shack to play with.

Hi Peter, unfortunately you have got answers from a whole lot of pussies. The majority of people on this website are the type of people who will not Jay walk or spit out the window. Most of them would not have opened a playboy in their life either.

Anyway all the rules of radio are correct (as stated above) however there is no way that you would get caught by the department of communications as they actually do not have anyone who goes out in white vans anymore trying to catch out a person who may be pushing out a few extra watts of power. They do not have the budget to do it and quite frankly there are far more important rules to enforce like speeding, drug trafficing and pedophilia so for the last 20 years the radio waves have been a "free for all".

If you want to get more power out of a CB you should choose the radio that you want and just simply buy a linear amplifier. You can get them to go into cars or to use as a home base. Look on E bay as they come up a lot. expect to pay between $100 and $500.00. Just plug it in and you are away. The amps have a few power settings and you can get them up to 1000 watts. You could reach someone on Uranus with that.

You can buy anything on ebay without an Ammateur liscence the seller is only interested in the money.

Some may think that this is irresponsible but who cares. We are not living in a socialist state (yet). So go for it.

Floyd.
Don't think you know much about radio floyd....... You maybe a pussie (as you can't spell) but some have the amateur license. Linier amps only cause harmonics etc, also cause interference all over the band and other forms of comunications.

I have a nice little ft-707 (110w in the shade) going for $350, but for most of the reasons above I won't sell it to you.

Its not difficult to obtain a base ham licence, why not look into it?
www.aca.gov.au,
http://www.radioelectronicschool.com/

if not, please don't use the ham bands unlicenced, but if youre in trubble, we're there to help

good luck
