It's not usually local police business if you are radiating too much power, it's the business of the agency in charge of frequencies and such -- Dunno what it is in Canada, but in the US it's the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) who enforces the federal law.
Now I know you have a law degree! LOL!
But in point of fact the FCC often (or used to be often 30 years ago) worked with a state's DOT to set up traps with the highway patrol acting as "smokies with ears" or some such name. The cops always monitored the CB trucks and the "heat" the signals gave off and helped radio ahead to the DOT to flag them in. The Feds often hold sway over the state DOTs I have noticed. All this to ask my original question about BC and their take on things with their RCMP.
Anyway this is from a time long past.. things have changed I guess and I just want to obey the law and so I would never dream of breaking it with a linear amplifier! NEVER! So all this is, I supposes, a rhetorical question
Thanks for your input, Pete.
