View Full Version : CB Channel Question

12-12-2011, 10:51 AM
Question for all you non HAM guys. What CB Channel do you typically use? I installed mine a while ago and on the occasions when I turn it on (out and about in the Denver metro area) , I never hear any chatter from anyone anywhere. I think I leave it on Channel 9, but I've even turned the Channel to the day's date to see if that gets me anything.

We're getting ready to take a holiday roadtrip and thought it might be usefual to have it dialed in to the right channel(s).

4 is the common 4 wheelers channel. If its busy then try the jump to 16 (4x4). Pretty standard procedure.

OK so it bugged me......

The all knowing Google told me the answer to Radars riddle....

"Channel 18: used Australia wide as the 'Caravan and Campers Channel'."
