Question about Radio Communications
The short answer is no -- the difference between AM and FM is too great though some CB radios were made dual mode, like the President Veep I used to own.
Some CBs that found the way into Britain were powerful sidebanders that offered similar capabilities to unlicensed CB-ers to that official radio hams had to sit exams to enjoy. Some radio hams found it cheaper to have those top-line CBs modified for use on the 11 metre amateur band.
It would be no help to you to obtain a standard FM CB as when the UK was forced to legalise CB radio under the Treaty of Rome, they legalised it at a different frequency as the American frequency was already allocated to radio control, bleepers and other things. Special CB sets were manufactured for the UK market.
