FWIW CB radio allows 4 watts of power. 1 mile of coverage at 4 watts is very doable and legal.
Also local law enforcement do not monitor or otherwise concern themselves with unlicensed radio stations. The averago joe blow person doesn’t understand nor care about the difference. The only people that do are us and other radio geeks.
So the notion that your local law enforcement officers would show up to your house guns drawn is a bit far fetched.
