ARRL, FCC Discussing Issue of Uncertified Imported VHF/UHF Transceivers WD3D on 16/11/19
Sorry. I have to disagree with this guy's proposal to make licensing stricter. I agree the code requirement was a good filter to keep the CB types out of our hobby. Not publishing the question pool would help as well. I agree with that old argument, but placing the modern "elmer" into such a position of importance is problematic since, from my experience surfing the HF frequencies, most of the most offensive deviants I've seen there ARE THE ELMERS who were licensed long long ago.

As far as the technical specifications of these radios, I haven't formed an opinion yet. I would tread lightly on this issue though. From what I read, one of the main issues is the ease at which these radios can be modified to operate out of band. I can think of plenty expensive name brand rigs that can be easily modified to operate out of band.

Be careful what you wish for.
