Did you know that it is now legal to operate using SSB and AM on CB radio? After years of pressure, Ofcom finally allowed UK CB operators access to single sideband and AM. We've had the UK 40 since 1981 and around 1989/90 the European frequencies became available. The UK 40 will remain as it always has been. However, whereas we've only been allowed to use FM with 4 W on the European frequencies, we can now use USB/LSB with a maximum power output of 12 W and AM with a maximum output of 4 W on these frequencies now. 

Citizens band radio in Torbay started to decline in the mid-1990s and by 2000 it was almost completely dead on all 80 channels. However, in the last few years, people have started to come back to the CB and slowly more people are starting to use the band. Even though I have been licensed to use amateur radio since 1995, citizens band radio is still very close to my heart and I am very eager to get people involved again here in the Torbay area.
