    I have a 80ch and have found some 40ch radios come through distorted to me but sound ok on other 40ch units.
    The reason would be they are probably transmitting with the full 5 KHz deviation and the 80ch units have their receivers set up to handle 2.5 KHz deviation.

    I think all 40 channel units should be banned and everybody should have to buy a new 80 channel unit from my work.

    The 18 channel CB's were 27MHz, not UHF and they changed to 40 channel in the early 80's.

    Back then they wanted every CB to have a licence.

    The bureaucrats were as dumb and unrealistic then as they are now. I still remember the PMG Kombi vans with the loop antennas on the roof that were trying to track us down and confiscate our radios! Hmm maybe Ground Hog Day is just around the corner.
