Using CB Radio

Postby reasonator » Sun Aug 14, 2011 7:46 pm



So, I spend a lot of time on the interstate and pass a lot of 'wings, and groups of 'wings. I can never "find" them on the CB, is there a particular channel that 'wing riders stay on as an "unwritten rule"?

We have asked that before and have come to the conclution of no. When im out on the interstate, back and forth to work, i dont have my cb on. When in groups, not very many with cb's, we seem to chose any random number. Got any in mind?

I'm not particular to any one channel, but I think there should be a campaign to have a "set" channel that "we" should be on when riding with the CB on. I mean, everyone and their brother on two wheels wants to waive at me as they pass as if they know me (which I am not knocking!!!), why don't we have a set CB channel to monitor? When out riding and you see another wing with two antenna and a mic on the helmet, flip on the CB and say "Hi" instead of waiving!?

I guess someone has to pick a channel to be used, so I will start this campaign off with Channel 2 as the "unofficial Goldwing CB Channel"....2 for two wheels?! But then all the trike riders would probably migrate to channel 3 pretty soon LOL!

If someone would like to donate a CB to me, I might consider installing one. But at $550 to 800 I'll pass. Too much money for me to have something that I'll use maybe two times a year.

Our GWRRA chapter always uses Channel 1 as well. I've been told that's what everyone I know uses also.
