Yeah, he could be running a linear. I used to have a linear though and I found that it didn't really increase my distance that much, not as much as you would expect anyway. What it did do was let you talk through.... or over someone else.
Don't take this a free ticket to break the law but there is so much else out there on CB radio that is wrong that a linear amp is probably not gonna draw much attention. I personally think that the FCC should reclaim that band and put it to good use.
As a disclaimer: Do not buy a linear amp for your CB, it's illegal. Plus it's a waste of good money.
