President Lincoln II+ 10meter

Finished my doubling din dash mount of my president lincoln radio. Not alot of room in a TJ so I bought the double din dash plate and stuffed it under my kenwood stereo. Had to cut the "lower deck plate" out. Also had to remove the stock security bracket. The Lincoln is a touch longer than my stereo is because of the monster heat sink. It sticks out a little further than I wanted but... works great and it's out of the way.

Nice job but are you also saying you modified your CB to also work on the 10m band? That's totally illegal for use on the 10m band. You need a ham license to use the 10m band.

The President Lincoln II ver. 3 is an "export" radio capable of transmitting on the 11 meter CB band as well as in the 10 meter ham band.

These radios are not approved by the FCC for use in the U.S. with or without an amateur radio license.

My "official" position as a ham radio licensee is that one should only use FCC-approved gear. However, as a former owner of a Galaxy "export" 11 meter radio that could outperform any FCC-approved CB radio I ever owned I can understand the popularity of the President Lincoln II among CB aficionados.

Don't transmit outside the CB frequencies and you won't get any criticism from me.

Sorry guys, I failed to explain this is NOT a CB radio. It's a box stock 10,12 meter amateur radio and I have a license.

again, I apologize for not making myself clear. This is NOT a CB radio. Its a 10/12 meter Amateur radio sold legally by multiple outlets, walmart and amazon included. This radio is box stock and is operated in accordance to all FCC regulations. I am a licensed amateur , N7TJX, extra class

Mr Bill stated above the he believed the radio was not approved for use in the US. I respectfully disagree. The FCC amateur radio page states that "The FCC equipment authorization program does not generally apply to amateur station transmitters."

Describe it however you wish but try to explain why: (1) your President Lincoln II is touted on the CB websites as a good quality "export" CB radio capable of transmitting on the 10, 11 and 12 meter bands with a minor modification that anyone can do, (2) the manufacturer provides a button on the face of your radio for switching between CB channels 9 and 19, and (3) why in your photo you have your radio tuned to CB channel 19 if it is not capable of Tx/Rx on the CB frequencies?

Although the FCC doesn't issue "type" authorizations for ham radio, it does for FRS,GMRS and CB - Part 95 to be specific. A device that transmits on the CB frequencies plus ham frequencies cannot qualify for Part 95 type approval and cannot be legally imported into the U.S. That's why they are called "export" radios. (And just because Amazon sells them doesn't make the radios legal to import. Amazon still sells Baofeng UV-5R handheld 2m/70cm/FRS/GMRS radios even though the FCC has cracked down on the major U.S. Baofeng distributors.)

I didn't just fall off the turnip truck. Enjoy your not-a-CB.

the memory in this radio is setup into channels simular to cb. This "channel 19" is actually 28.535 mhz, well into the 10m band. There is no 9/19 button. It says EMG 1/2

Please dont accuse me of things when you dont even know me. If you would like to sit down over a cup of coffee and operate my station, you are welcome anytime.

I also did not fall off the turnip truck. I did however work for years to obtain my license and want to keep it. My radio is unmodified and legal.
