Perhaps in advertising, but not in reality (in the field).
The old CB's used a simple mixing scheme to generate their
frequencies, however this is/was a valid (incoherent) synthesis
technique and was used for many purposes other than CBs before
the current PLL & Coherent synthesis became popular (or
There are many frequency synthesis techniques other than the PLL
which most people have seen. Some of these techniques include
brute-force, harmonic, double-mix, triple-mix, and
double-mix-divide. These have different trade-offs than PLLs.
These usually cost more...
