PR 27/94  The newer model radios from 1994 carried this stamp. It uses
the exact same UK Channels as the 27/81 Cb Radios but tougher conditions

MPT 1382 or PR27/97  The late nineties stamp that basically ombined the CEPT and PR 27/94 for use on 80 channel dual band radios.

December 2006  C.B. radio was deregulated by Ofcom and it is now licence free.

SSB to Finally Become Legal in the UK 2014

The new AM/SSB legislation only permits the use of new and approved sets, not 'legacy' multimode sets. The power limits are 4W
ERP for AM and 12W ERP for SSB.

Most radios bought today are usually all European Multi Standard. This is a system were by upon switching on your radio, the CB will ask for your country. Once you select the country, the radio would then operate according to that countries legal CB bands.
