Seems to me awhile ago QST published a letter that was envisioning using a single simplex FM freq. for drivers on U.S. highways. The author stated it would be akin to Ch19 for CBers. I don't recall what the proposed freq was nor if this 'movement' ever took hold. I'm getting ready to do some traveling and short of putting a sign in my back window stating that "I'm monitoring..." it would be nice to know.

The Ham equivalent of Ch 19 for CBers is something I would be very interested in. After many years of planning on doing it but just never getting around to it I finally took the test and made the jump from CB to amateur radio. I just installed my new ham rig (IC-7100) in my Jeep and am trying to get it configured. I have scanned 2 meter from 144.1 to 148 and 10 meter from 28.3 to 28.7 on FM, AM and USB but so far all I've gotten is static. My 10 meter antenna is close enough to 11 meter that I can tune down to the 27 MHz range and pick up my CB walkie-talkie. It is not very clear but I can tell there is someone there. If there is the equivalent of CH 19 for ham (please specify AM, FM or USB) that might be my best bet for finding someone on the air. I'm a little hesitant to crack the mic until I get some SWR issues resolved but I figure there is no reason I can't listen in to start picking up the on-air protocols before going live.

Cb Channel 19 is 27.185, maybe us hams should monitor 29.185 in AM mode when on the road.
