what chanel do the truckers use i want to test my cb /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
19, around here atleast.
Most places it's 19. I think in Cali they use 17 and 19.
cali is a clusterf' for cb usage. generally the channel you use there is related to the interstate you are on, ie 10 for the 10 and 40 for the 40. those are the only ones i know. its few and far between to find a professional driver on 19 in the cities in cali. as for the rest of the road, 19 should get you to a driver.

In Cali its 17 for I5 and H99 except for a few spots on 99 which is 15, most the rest of Cali is 19 i.e. I10,I40,I80 and most if not all... anything east of I5. As a matter of fact all of I5 is channel 17. Now the United States is all channel 19 (besides I5), considering Cali is the Republic of Mexico.
Remembering back to when I lived in Upstate NY, it was 18.
19 in Iowa
well i up date on my raido i must have a ground problem by it will be a few weeks till i fix it
Generally all over the east coast, its 19. If you have one of those big ol antennas (102") im ususally able to get around 4-5 miles over urban areas. Just gotta tune it right. I have a meter if you want to borrow it next time.
well i have come to the conlusion i need a better antana when i install it i may ask for your help at the next run i think the raido needs to be tuned to the antana but this is all new to me

If you can tune, some truckers are on above 27.405 Mhz and also below 26.965Mhz. If you can hear spurious on the legal channels (someone really close by) and can't find them, look to these freqs.
