First FM-Capable CB Rig Approved by FCC

President Electronics has received the first FCC approval to market an FM-capable CB transceiver in the U.S. The FCC authorized the use of FM on CB last summer. 

Newsline reports that President's "Thomas FCC" transceiver was granted FCC authorization on November 10 to operate between 26.965 and 27.405 MHz with a maximum output power of 4 watts. 

It is not clear how soon the radios will be available for purchase in the U.S. A European version of the Thomas model has been available there for nearly a decade.
