Ebay (and the FCC I guess) wont allow this particular model
to be listed or sold/resold.
It seems there is an entire underground CB thing going on,
slightly disguised as 10 meter rigs...
I thought it could be sold as a 10 meter rig, but they will not
allow it listed at all.
It seems like a nice radio (for CB), if a xtal is changed,
it would cover CB and most of the 10 meter phone band.
I like the nasa style unkey beep...
