Because it does not comply with FCC regulations for CB in the U.S., it cannot legally be sold as a CB radio here, so they have to call it something else.Or another words if the superstar 121 works outside of the Ham 10 meter band how is it considered a 10 meter radio?
I own 2 and I am not trying to achieve anything other than I sold one, having read all I could find on the radio, including the fact it was sold new as " Superstar 121 10 meter radio" , so I sold it as a 10 meter radio. Then the person I sold it to wanted to return it saying it was not a 10 meter radio, because it doesn't cover 28-29.7 MHz, which technically is true. So it is technically not a 10 meter radio, no matter what it was billed as when sold new by the manufacturer. So as the next person 1911 - chupacabra says , "Because it does not comply with FCC regulations for CB in the U.S., it cannot legally be sold as a CB radio here, so they have to call it something else. ", Is not a good enough reason for me to not return my buyers money, as it is not a 10-meter radio.. So what I was trying to achieve was being honest..From a few yrs back:
