CB radio in Australia
CB radio is a little different in Australia than elsewhere. The term 'CB' here is officially used to refer to either our 27 MHz or 477 MHz bands. And it's the latter where we're significantly different from elsewhere. There is no limit to the antenna gain you can have and there are repeaters in many parts of the country. And our power limit is five watts with both mobile and handheld units available.
Anyway more on my website here.
