    Splatterbox. Use a legal radio, good quality coax, good quality antenna, excellent ground. Less is more. Quality over quantity.

    They are illegal to use with a CB Radio because the FCC limits how much power you can "legally" run on 11 Meter...That said, technically ALL amplifiers are illegal to use with a CB Radio, not just Pride 100A's...

    As for the 8000 mile range deal...It's roughly 8595 miles from the tip of the North Pole to the tip of the South pole...Now do you really think that little box is going to broadcast your signal anywhere close to that far?:rolleyes:

    Maybe the claimant meant the operator could talk to somebody in space
