Kick up the wave a notch!!!!

OK...so I was thinking....And there's half of the problem!

Ya know how 9 of the 10 jeep owners you pass on the road wave? Since most of us have CBs in our jeeps....I wonder why we couldn't designate a national Jeep channel...Sorta like "9" is for emergencies...That sort of thing.
If we did this and kept the CB on that channel when we're on the road...We could key up the mic when we see another Jeep and actually say "Hi...Nice Jeep" or "Man you really need to adjust those headlights" or "Follow me, I know where the good trails and cold beer are kept around here".....

I dunno....Maybe like channel 33 or something.

What do you guys think?

Or if you have a loud speaker(like my XJ) you can yell at them in traffic. That usually gets a smile

I don't usually keep my CB in the jeep. But I'm thinking about getting a great big foam finger to wave with

(Maybe you could flash them, Cain)

I live in Arizona and here and to be honest every where else I have been with my Jeep most people run channel 4. I have been in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, CA all the same.

Here is some info I found on google.

http://www.wattora.com/cb4.htm

Why do off road clubs and 4x4 groups commonly use CB Channel 4?

Many off road clubs, including WATTORA have standardized on CB channel 4 for events. There are several reasons for choosing that channel. In the same way that truckers know they can go to channels 17 and 19 on the CB to reach other truckers on the highway's, off road users needed a channel where they had a chance of being able to raise someone else who could actually get to where they are at.

Channel 16 (4x4) is already in use and is common reserved for sideband transmissions only. As a result, channel 4 became the obvious choice. Clubs will often designate channel 8 (4+4) as a backup channel in the event that channel 4 is too crowded.

Keep in mind that groups often meet on channel 4, then migrate to another channel to lessen the crowding on the "hailing frequency" and other clubs do use other channels all together, but the next time you are off road, try giving a shout on channel 4, many of us monitor it, even when we are using other channels for a formal run. If you are in need of assistance or just want to say "hello" to an off road group, try out channel 4 to start.
