Modifications for Amateur Radio use
General: The radio is shipped as CB radio with factory pre-programmed limitation to the green marked CB radio standards. In Europe and USA, CB radio users can select between the modes Code d, Code EU, Code E, Code PL, Code U, and Code US.
Radio amateurs with a valid radio amateur license can expand the radio to Code 0 to Code 4 modes. Code 0 covers the 10 m and 12 m bands, Code 1 the 10 m band, Code 2 the 12 m band and Code 3 is a summary of all technically possible Frequencies in a CB like radio channel mode with 450 channels, which is in use in some Eastern European countries for CB radio. Code 4 is the same, but with –5 kHz offset according to the Poland CB frequency system.
Amateurs are allowed to use Code 0, 1 and 2 (Codes 0 and 2 only in countries where the 12 m band is allowed). In Germany, amateurs with license may operate radios which are totally open in their frequency range (that means incl. Code 3 and 4, but the use is restricted to the allocated amateur Radio frequency bands and the use as amateur radio).
Please note that any other use (for example as CB radio or commercial radio for business purposes) is forbidden for radio amateurs.
