This is a linear. Linear amplifiers kick up the output wattage of a CB. They are illegal and can be dangerous. You can fry your friend’s CBs if you try to run one; like a car stereo amp, they draw a lot of power and you need an antenna that can handle the power. Um, that is, if they weren’t banned by the FCC.
