You have to take an exam to get an amateur radio license. Then you can use a variety of equipment, bands and transmission methods. Any fool can have a CB - all you're allowed (in the UK) is 4 watts on the 27MHz FM band. There are regulations about the type/height of ariel you're allowed too. Most CB regulations are ignored by many users. Other countries allow AM transmission. 27MHz AM is reserved for model control systems in the UK (model planes, cars, etc)
