common CB channels?

Hey, I'm headed out on another one of my 3,000 mile jaunts, but I'm doing the first 1,000 solo. I remember seeing a page somewhere that had "common" CB channels used on N/S vs. E/W highways, but I can't find it.

Anyone remember what the common channels are?

(And no, it's not channel 4! )

Well, actually hopefully a fair bit of it will be... but that part I'm ok on!)

pretty close. not exactly line of sight, but close enough as not to matter much.

technically a legal cb has about a 4 mile range or so. (and mine is! :p)

I recall reading somewhere that truckers travelling east/west use one set of common freq's, and north/south another. But I just found a reference to support channel 19... guess I'll check that out!

thanks!

Sorry Scottiac, I don't have an answer for you.

I would like to know the details of your trip though, so that I might live vicariously, is only for a moment.



4Route, this might help you with any info you need. As far as I've read, the CB is wholly dependent on the antenna used.

With that said, I didn't end up getting a Firestick antenna.

Sure! Every once in a while (this is the second time), I convince work that they'd rather pay me mileage to go out to Denver than pay for a plane ticket and a rental car. So I make a semi-leisurely sprint from Sacramento to Denver (3 days, ain't much of a sprint! ) doing a little sightseeing on the way.

When it's time to come back to Sacramento, I take a week off, my g/f flies out to meet me somewhere en route, and we amble our way back for 7-10 days.

Last year we did the "senior citizen's tour" of the national parks in Utah... We'd wake up in one park, go through another one at lunch, and end up sleeping at a third one. We were basically deciding which ones we wanted to spend more time in. (ALL OF THEM, DANGIT!)

So this year, I'm picking her up in Salt Lake City, and we're going to the Arches for a few days, then a few days in the Canyonlands (not NEARLY enough!). Then amble westward through Capital Reef, and maybe Cedar Breaks (if they get the snow cleared) on the way down to Bishop, where we'll spend 3 or 4 days with some family and friends, and exploring that area.

We'll probably only do light off-roading while we're out, just because of time constraints, and no backup vehicle, and the fact I don't want to pack all that stuff today!

That sounds like a lot of fun..isnt there a '100' mile back road in or near the Canyon lands park? - if so I would like to see that. When in Bishop I suggest taking the 10000 elevation switch back road to the Ancient Brisitlecone pine forest - I don't know the exact road to get there, but it is just out of town I'm sure a Gazetter or local info can get you there- very cool run and view.

14 is very common with all because many cheap CB radios and handhelds only have one channel, 14.

nobody,

yep, there's a fabulous looking 90 mile drive through the islands in the sky part of canyonlands... Darren (I think) just posted a great trip rpt from there.

Probably not going to take the time to do that one this trip.

The switchback road to the bristlecone forest was definitely on my list though!

EDIT: I know you're gone, but did you take the Runner?

Did I take the runner???

What kind of damn fool question is that?!?

I'll answer this way... when National Park Service says 4wd, high clearance, you could drive a lowered mr/2 over it. When BLM says it, prepare to get thrown around a bit! Not technical, but definitely 4wd req'd!

Went to Rattlesnake Canyon this morning... kinda by accident! Fun drive for a "kill time until visitors center opens" sort of thing! Whole bunch more on the trip when I do the second part... where I take 10 days to wander home!

Gapguy, Honk on your way to Wyoming!

OK OK OK, I should have assumed the best! I was actually thinking about leaving early and making a detour to Moab. Maybe, Maybe not.

Have fun!
