In the meantime you have to endure the extremely abusive language and prejudices spewed by truckers while hoping to glean just a bit of useful information. If I were in trouble I would either use my cell phone for curl up until some real help arrived as the CB is not likely going to be able to provide critical assistance should it be necessary.

I do use CH 19 when in a traffic tie up on the Interstate and want to find the best lane to be in.

I've found that most of the truckers won't answer you on a CB. I believe that is because they don't use them as much as they have phones and internet now. And as a ex trucker myself most of them and I don't like the language either. But there always is the newbies who want to impress the world. And there is a lot of 4 wheelers who put the big rigs in dangerous situations. Creating a few choice words from the best of us.
PS I leave mine shut off when traveling.

And a CB does prove useful from time to time in avoiding and getting routed around traffic, wrecks, road closures.
Your mileage may vary...
