Yeah.... But was she really yelling at you because of your 'batwing'?

Is there a link that describes the over air protocol? Also what channels are used for what purpose?

No real standard channels for certain things. #9 is emergency, not chit chat and some police monitor this channel too. #19 it what the truckers use mostly, some contact each other on 19 and then switch to another channel if traveling together. Motor cycles use #1 and #14 often.

I also ride a m/c and on the Interstate, will contact truckers for WX info, etc. We will change channels if traveling the same way at the same speeds if we wish to visit. I have had some interesting conversations with these guys that cover our great country.

Once many many years ago I was chatting with a "Mighty Mouse" handled trucker at about 2:00 (+/-) while traveling on I-75 north of Flint. He suddenly asked what lane I was in and then when I replied he told me to get the heck out of that lane and quick. I moved over about a lane and a half when I saw what he was warning me about; a huge chunk of dunnage on the road. Being my wife and I were in a low sports car that night he basically saved my bacon.

I too have had interesting conversations with many lonely truckers as I plied the highways and byways of North America.

CB usage in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Channel 4: The channel for 4X4 off-roading vehicles.
Channel 9: Emergency channel, for emergency help as well as traveler assistance. Sometimes monitored by authorities in rural areas.
Channel 13: RV channel, as well as marine recreation.
Channel 17: North to south freeways trucking channel.
Channel 19: East to west freeways trucking channel.

Need CB antenna

I saw a lot of CBS and related items at a Flying J truck stop. Search the internet for what you want and the best price.

Unless you are in the middle of nowhere you will hear something on 19. Can always get on and ask for a "radio check".
