Do you need a license for 10 meter radio?
Unlike a CB Radio, you need to have a license to operate a 10 Meter Radio. ... With their high power output, 10 Meter Radios can overpower CB transmissions and other important local communications. The 10 Meter Band consists of frequencies stretching from 28.000 to 29.700 MHz.
What is 10 meter radio used for?
10 Meter Radios are Amateur Radios, also known as Ham Radios. Another important aspect of operating a 10 Meter Radio is that they don't want disruption of other important communications.

How far does a ham radio reach?
With a 2 metre mobile radio in your car, you can talk directly to other hams 15 or 20 kilometres away. By operating through a repeater station, that same radio can reliably reach hundreds of kilometres. With an HF (high frequency) radio, you can reach the entire world...if the conditions are favorable.
