DX on SSB

It may be just my opinion, but it seems a little foolish for someone who has their ham call with a question about illegal use of frequencies on the same page. Get a good 10 meter radio (not a converted CB) with 100 watts and try some real DXing.

I think he is referring to FCC rules Part 95 - Subpart D - Rule 13 section 9:

You must NOT use a CB station-
[9] to communicate with, or ATTEMPT to communicate with, any CB station more than 155.3 miles (250 kilometers) away.


I don't think the FCC is gonna come knocking if you break this rule, But you never know and you do run the risk of losing you license or being fined and your radios taken away.
