Default CB channels in Philly

Getting a rig mostly for emergency purposes in a few weeks but wanted to know if channels were still active here. Pulled out the SWR and only heard local talk on Ch 6. Are NE Philly folks still on 27? Any other active channels in Philly and if so, when/where?

Thanks.

What do you mean by: "Pulled out the SWR and only heard local talk on Ch 6"? Your SWR and what you RX have nothing to do with each other. The SWR is only when you TX. Please clarify, thanks

That makes no sense whatsoever.

Nor does asking an internet forum what channels are active in your area. You are the best qualified person to discover what channels are active in your area. Turn your radio on, and rotate the channel knob periodically. Or if your radio has a scan function, try it out. You'll quickly get an idea of what channels are active within range of your radio setup.

Every channel will be busy if skip rolling in.

I meant my shortwave receiver.

I was just listening today and heard activity on 27. 19 seems dead here.

Thanks.
Ch 6 has the skip shooters and 27 has the local crew in the Northeast. That's all I've ever heard, other than the usual 19 guys...

SWR = Short Wave Radio, maybe?
