Who is the SCBO ?

CB-radio was introduced in Switzerland in 1973 with the permission to use 28 channels with 5 watt AM. Poor quality of the CB-radio sets and false understanding of our pioneers resulted in interference of radio and television. Therefore, after four months only the authorities restricted the concession to 12 channels and 100 mW transmitting power. As a result, CB-organisations were founded all over Switzerland and submitted requests for liberalization of CB-radio to the authorities. Finally, in 1979, the Swiss-CB-Organisation was founded to represent CB-radio to the authorities.

Organisation

Our „parliament“ is based on the annual delegations meeting where deci-sions on activities and elections to the management are made.

To support the exchange of information and as a opinion-forming plat-form, meetings of all presidents are held one times a year.

Members of our organisation receive important information by reading the records of the meetings or Internet.

Our goals

On the occasion of the delegations meeting in 1995, the spokesman of the authorities described the SCBO as a hard but fair negotiating partner. To us, those words are a compliment and prove how serious the SCBO works for the concerns of CB-radio. Finally, in 1979, the Swiss-CB-Organisation was founded to represent CB-radio to the authorities. Our concrete goals are:

  • promotion of CB-radio
  • information about regulations and innovations
  • reduction in antagonism and prejudice
  • improvement of technical conditions
  • representing the SCBO in the authorities, the market and in interested groups

How do we reach out for our goals ?

The SCBO will still stand for liberal solutions in the future. Day by day, changes and improvements prove that nobody can rest on oneís laurels.

The UHF-CB-radio is the end of 2003 history. Europe appropriated our DSRR-frequency to the use of mobile phones. This example shows that to be expected at any time change must.

Memberships of the SCBO ?

Active organisations (active clubs) are CB-clubs whose own regulations correspond with the regulations of the SCBO. The clubs have the right to vote at the delegations meeting and the meeting of the presidents which also decides on the admission to the organisation.

Passive organisations, which have no regulations, support the SCBO and receive all information. The organisations have one right to vote at the delegations meeting and the meeting of the presidents which also decides on the admission to the organisation.

Passive members are CB-radio users which donít wish to be a member of an organisation but like to support the SCBO. The board of the organisation decides on a possible admission. The users receive the “Flash” magazine.

Honorary members are members who especially supported CB-radio. Their admission is decided at the delegations meeting.

Annual subscriptions:

  • Active organisations min. SFr. 50.–
  • Passive organisations SFr. 50.– (all in)
  • Passive members SFr. 20.–
