Default Bozos on Channel 6 - who are these guys?

CB channel 6 - what a distraction!
They sound like a bunch of hillbillies that just talk gibberish constantly.
One guy says bye-bye at least 30 times in a row every 1/2 hour or so.
Does anyone else have to put up with these idiots every time you turn on the CB?
Can the FCC do something about it, the wttage they transmit over is way off the hook even here in Central California.

That is exactly why the CB lost popularity in the early 80's. It became so cluttered you couldn't talk more than a mile on a radio that didn't have a linear amplifier. Too much trash talk too.

Channel 6 is known as the "Superbowl". Guys running mega-watts of power with huge beam antennas. And yes, its crazy talk

Simple answer......NO. They let it be a free for all in the CB channels.

However HAM radio is a different story....

Just called the FCC and lodged a complaint and it is as you just said - it's a complete free for all on the CB in America.
Not much they can do but they were surprised that the CB signal on Channel 6 was reaching across the entire US.
So, they said an agent would call me back about it, we'll see if that happens, I'm not holding my breath anyways.
Wish there was a way to block out Channel 6 from channel scans while on the road.

There are still rules that the FCC can enforce for power level and content. Whether they will or not with all of the budget cuts is another thing. Keep cutting taxes and you don't get any service anymore.
