Do you have to worry about buzzbee if you run an illegal radio as we did in the 70s when we all ran AM and sidebanders like the 148 gtl dx and lots of power.

Hi Dave,

In addition to the UK FM we now have AM, FM & SSB on the CEPT frequencies so there really isn't an issue with this anymore.
Ofcom have little interest in the policing of the 11meter band so the answer to your question is no.

73's Gary.

On the subject of ofcom , can I put up a PDL2 (quad) or a 3 element beam as my home base antenna or are they illegal still.

Hi Dave. No restrictions on antennas, you can use what you want now.

What might scupper you is planning and other more local restrictions on aspects such as height mounted. Really depends on the area you are in as to if you might need to apply for permission or what you can get away with.

Ofcom have no interest in anything anymore.
They don't even follow up on pirating when given the name and address apparently. 
Local council is your biggest problem.

There's no restriction for antennas on FM as it measures power at the antenna socket so the gain of the antenna doesn't matter. But there is for AM and SSB because the limit of the power is measured in ERP which is what the antenna radiates so if you're not able to reduce the power you transmit in those modes you could only use an antenna with 0dB gain.

https://www.ofcom.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0030/84765/ir_2027.2.pdf

The maximum effective radiated power for
Citizens’ Band radio station shall be limited to 4
Watts (measured as a root mean square) for DSB
modulation, and 12 Watts (measured as a peak
envelope power) for SSB modulation.

In practice though the only people who care are the council planning department.
