Sec. 95.408 (CB Rule 8) How high may I put my antenna?

(a) Antenna means the radiating system (for transmitting,
receiving
or both) and the structure holding it up (tower, pole or mast). It
also
means everything else attached to the radiating system and the
structure.
(b) If your antenna is mounted on a hand-held portable unit, none
of
the following limitations apply.
(c) If your antenna is installed at a fixed location, it (whether
receiving, transmitting or both) must comply with either one of the
following:
(1) The highest point must not be more than 6.10 meters (20 feet)
higher than the highest point of the building or tree on which it is
mounted; or
(2) The highest point must not be more than 18.3 meters (60 feet)
above the ground.
(d) If your CB station is located near an airport, and if you
antenna structure is more than 6.1 meters (20 feet) high, you may have
to obey additional restrictions. The highest point of your antenna
must
not exceed one meter above the airport elevation for every hundred
meters of distance from the nearest point of the nearest airport
runway.
Differences in ground elevation between your antenna and the airport
runway may complicate this formula. If your CB station is near an
airport, you may contact the nearest FCC field office for a worksheet
to
help you figure the maximum allowable height of your antenna. Consult
part 17 of the FCC's Rules for more information.

Warning: Installation and removal of CB station antennas near
powerlines is dangerous. For your safety, follow the installation
directions included with your antenna.

Sec. 95.409 (CB Rule 9) What equipment may I use at my CB station?

(a) You must use an FCC certificated CB transmitter at your CB
station. You can identify an FCC certificated transmitter by the
certification label placed on it by the manufacturer. You may examine
a
list of certificated equipment at any FCC Field Office or at FCC
Headquarters. Use of a transmitter which is not FCC certificated voids
your authority to operate the station.
(b) You must not make, or have made, any internal modification to
a
certificated CB transmitter. (See CB Rule 25, Sec. 95.425). Any
internal
modification to a certificated CB transmitter cancels the
certification,
and use of such a transmitter voids your authority to operate the
station.

your certificated CB transmitter in any way:
(1) External radio frequency (RF) power amplifiers (sometimes
called
linears or linear amplifiers); or
(2) Any other devices which, when used with a radio transmitter as
a
signal source, are capable of amplifying the signal.
(b) There are no exceptions to this rule and use of a power
amplifier voids your authority to operate the station.
(c) The FCC will presume you have used a linear or other external
RF
power amplifier if--

[[Page 537]]

(1) It is in your possession or on your premises; and
(2) There is other evidence that you have operated your CB station

Sec. 95.412 (CB Rule 12) What communications may be transmitted?

(a) You may use your CB station to transmit two-way plain language
communications. Two-way plain language communications are
communications
without codes or coded messages. Operating signals such as ``ten
codes''
are not considered codes or coded messages. You may transmit two-way
plain language communications only to other CB stations, to units of
your own CB station or to authorized government stations on CB
frequencies about--
(1) Your personal or business activities or those of members of
your
immediate family living in your household;
(2) Emergencies (see CB Rule 18, Sec. 95.418);
(3) Traveler assistance (see CB Rule 18, Sec. 95.418); or
(4) Civil defense activities in connection with official tests or
drills conducted by, or actual emergencies announced by, the civil
defense agency with authority over the area in which your station is
located.
(b) You may use your CB station to transmit a tone signal only
when
the signal is used to make contact or to continue communications.
(Examples of circuits using these signals are tone operated squelch
and
selective calling circuits.) If the signal is an audible tone, it must
last no longer than 15 seconds at one time. If the signal is a
subaudible tone, it may be transmitted continuously only as long as
you
are talking.
(c) You may use your CB station to transmit one-way communications
(messages which are not intended to establish communications between
two
or more particular CB stations) only for emergency communications,
traveler assistance, brief tests (radio checks) or voice paging.

Sec. 95.408 (CB Rule 8) How high may I put my antenna?

(a) Antenna means the radiating system (for transmitting,
receiving
or both) and the structure holding it up (tower, pole or mast). It
also
means everything else attached to the radiating system and the
structure.
(b) If your antenna is mounted on a hand-held portable unit, none
of
the following limitations apply.
(c) If your antenna is installed at a fixed location, it (whether
receiving, transmitting or both) must comply with either one of the
following:
(1) The highest point must not be more than 6.10 meters (20 feet)
higher than the highest point of the building or tree on which it is
mounted; or
(2) The highest point must not be more than 18.3 meters (60 feet)
above the ground.
(d) If your CB station is located near an airport, and if you
antenna structure is more than 6.1 meters (20 feet) high, you may have
to obey additional restrictions. The highest point of your antenna
must
not exceed one meter above the airport elevation for every hundred
meters of distance from the nearest point of the nearest airport
runway.
Differences in ground elevation between your antenna and the airport
runway may complicate this formula. If your CB station is near an
airport, you may contact the nearest FCC field office for a worksheet
to
help you figure the maximum allowable height of your antenna. Consult
part 17 of the FCC's Rules for more information.

Warning: Installation and removal of CB station antennas near
powerlines is dangerous. For your safety, follow the installation
directions included with your antenna.

(a) You must use an FCC certificated CB transmitter at your CB
station. You can identify an FCC certificated transmitter by the
certification label placed on it by the manufacturer. You may examine
a
list of certificated equipment at any FCC Field Office or at FCC
Headquarters. Use of a transmitter which is not FCC certificated voids
your authority to operate the station.
(b) You must not make, or have made, any internal modification to
a
certificated CB transmitter. (See CB Rule 25, Sec. 95.425). Any
internal
modification to a certificated CB transmitter cancels the
certification,
and use of such a transmitter voids your authority to operate the

Sec. 95.412 (CB Rule 12) What communications may be transmitted?

(a) You may use your CB station to transmit two-way plain language
communications. Two-way plain language communications are
communications
without codes or coded messages. Operating signals such as ``ten
codes''
are not considered codes or coded messages. You may transmit two-way
plain language communications only to other CB stations, to units of
your own CB station or to authorized government stations on CB
frequencies about--
(1) Your personal or business activities or those of members of
your
immediate family living in your household;

defense agency with authority over the area in which your station is
located.
(b) You may use your CB station to transmit a tone signal only
when
the signal is used to make contact or to continue communications.
(Examples of circuits using these signals are tone operated squelch
and
selective calling circuits.) If the signal is an audible tone, it must
last no longer than 15 seconds at one time. If the signal is a
subaudible tone, it may be transmitted continuously only as long as
you
are talking.
(c) You may use your CB station to transmit one-way communications
(messages which are not intended to establish communications between
two
or more particular CB stations) only for emergency communications,
traveler assistance, brief tests (radio checks) or voice paging.
