I have been on CB from 1969 and have had CB in every car, truck motorcycle and boat I have ever owned. 19 is the truckers channel there are local channels all over and 9 is still monitored at my base I all ways have one radio on 9. I would keep it in if you ever need it it is there.

Ch 19 is used almost everywhere, except CA uses 16, I think. When you enter Canada it seems each province has their own channel for truckers. I think someone posted them under the CB radios section of Hobbies forum.

Truckers use channel 19 on interstate highways except in California.


On I 5 south from the candian border to hwy 46 in California they use channel 17
Hwy 46 to top of grapevine channel 15. once in la your guess is as good as mine.
I10 in California is 19

From The Truckers Report: Canada CB-
"Generally, English speakers run 19 from Alberta to Ontario.
In Ontario, English speakers run 19. French speakers on 12. The East Indian drivers are on 7 (a.k.a. the "multicultural channel"), especially in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area).

In Quebec, English speakers are on 19 from the Ontario border to Montreal. East of Montreal to the east coast (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI, Newfoundland and Labrador),they usually gravitate to channel 1. If you hear French on channel 1, it's New Brunswickers switching between languages (New Brunswick's the only truly bilingual province in Canada).


On the west coast, it's channel 1 from the Pacific Ocean to Kamloops/Kelowna area (about half-way across BC). East of Kamloops, most drivers turn to 19 (I say most, some remain on 1 till Alberta)."

"raw and earthy"?
I worked in highway construction for 30 years and my wife has been in the shipping industry for over 30 years around longshoremen and all. We refuse to listen to the "earthy" chatter on a CB. I used to monitor the air waves as a REACT volunteer too. I have a CB in my rig, I don't think I've had it on since 2004.

Bought my first CB in 1975. Back when had to have license. KNK5981.

Always leave CB on in MH. Squelched, so that I can only hear a transmission very close to me. That way, if there is a problem with MH or toad and a vehicle with a CB can see it, they can alert me. Something like a flat tire or open bay door or something trailing, falling. And of course, I do the same back. Antenna up and steps down are winning so far.

And useful when traveling with others and talking to toad when running separately.

I've had a CB since I had my first car...... way back in the day. I still have one in my TW and monitor Ch. 13 when on the road towing the 5'r. If I need to get the latest road conditions, I'll "jump" to 19 and then switch back to avoid all the "earthy" chatter. I also display the channel I monitor (ch. 13) on the back of the RV to let other RV'rs know if they want to chat a bit and have a pg-rated conversation. It's fun to chat with others who are also traveling and share the same passion as us.

Happy Camping!

I have an 8 track in my old '77 pickup.... It is almost as useful as that old CB. If you put them both on the end of a chain, they wouldn't even work good for an anchor. Maybe you could add the Atari and the old PC and even the real to real tape drive and even the old cassette deck. That should make a reasonable anchor.

Hay, nothing wrong with 8 track as long as you have the tapes. (unfortunately I have lost a lot of mine. I was young and dumb once) Still got a cassette deck in the boat. Got quite a few cassettes yet. Why throw away all that good music and have to buy it all over again every few years when the newest "Gee Wiz" music device comes out.

About a year ago I was in a remote location on the coast of northern California with a group of people and we had an emergency. We had four different carriers with all the people that were there and no one had any signal, including me.

I dialed 911 anyways and guess what. I got the 911 operator and help was sent.

So keep in mind to dial 911 even though your phone doesn't show any coverage.
