Did you know that you may be able to listen to CB radio on your shortwave receiver?
If you have a digital receiver that covers from 26.9-27.5 MHz, you can listen to CB frequencies in a matter of minutes. Below, I’ve posted a chart of all 40 CB “channels” and their associated frequencies.
Why listen to CB radio?
- Find out what road conditions are like from local drivers by monitoring talk between truck drivers
- Monitor Channel 9 (the emergency channel) and contact local authorities if you hear a distress call
- During an emergency you could glean valuable information from the CB frequencies
- Entertainment value: hey, it’s CB–you never know what you may hear.
