Give CH19 a shot when you're near the highway. It's the national "information" channel but it's where 99% of trucker activity is across the majority of the country.

Laurkar,

Theres an effort afoot in Connecticut to pull together a Connecticut CB Network (CCBN). The idea is that information gets passed from zip code area to zip code area by network operators (no real membership).

In this type of relay network an operator simply identifies themselves by using the last three numbers of their CT zip code (the first two are all 06) prefaced by CCBN and asks for a copy in a neighboring zip that gets the message closer to its target destination. All of the operators in a given zip share the same functional ID. For instance, I would say CCBN424 (thats my zip ID) any copy in 480 (Portland)? If an operator responses, I can hand off the message/information to them and it has just moved about seven miles west.

The goal is to breathe some life into the CT CB community, to allow CB neighbors to get to know each other a little better and to provide a potential low-tech communication network (albeit very lose) that could be useful in times of emergency. Networks like this are quite common in the very rural parts of this country and countries like Australia. They have their downsides, but contrary to vocal fans of more sophisticated radio networking protocols, they work pretty well.

Its not intended to be any kind of substitute for the wonderful work that amateur radio ops do for our communities, but it provides a much lower cost and much more inclusive (no licensure) communications option.

I monitor Chan. 25. If youre anywhere near the 06424 zip, call for a CCBN424 copy some evening and Id be happy to put you on the map. A website link is also in the works hopefully this fall.

I don't know of any CB club here in this area, but I do monitor channels 8 and 22 when I'm driving. Unfortunately, all I hear lately is some morons out yelling "audio", talking smack, and playing music.

Did this network ever get off the ground? I've never heard anyone passing messages in my neck of the woods (east of the CT river). What channel do you use to pass traffic? AM or SSB?

Default CB and GMRS

Hi I hope that maybe all of us who are on CB or GMRS which our Oklahoma County REACT team uses could start where you are. My CB handle was Green Honet and I am glad to see that CB is not a thing of the past.

I run a radio club myself, though it's new and not quite known yet. But being in the state of Wisconsin I'm not sure if it would be of any help to you. But if you are interested I can try to post a link sometime.
