Western Pennsylvania Sideband Net

Western Pennsylvania Sideband Net Sunday Nights 8-10 PM CH 32 LSB. Make up a number, check in, tell us what radio and antenna you are running, what you been up to and stay a while and chat.

The Western PA Sideband net was on ch 36 LSB from 1978-1997 and then restarted in 2006 by Tombstone. In 2008 Tombstone died and Sleepy took over the net, and has done a really good job at it for the last 10 years. In april 2018 the guys in the city and south hills won’t let us run the net on ch 36 anymore, so we moved it to ch 32 where the folks there give up 2 hours a week to do something constructive with a cb radio and see who is still on the air in the tri state area.

Thanks to Coffee Cup Dave (South Side) Here is an overall roster from 2006-2018 to remember all the people that have checked in. Many of these stations we have lost and many others not been heard from in a long time. If anyone has any other year’s rosters, send them to me and I will post them here. I am also looking for some older rosters from 1997 or before.

CB Radio 27mhz 11 Meter Band Plan / Allocated Frequencies

CB Radio 27mhz 11 Meter Band Plan / Allocated Frequencies

Here are some Generally Accepted CB Radio Frequencies

Usually from 26.000 up to  channel 35 is AM operation. Channel 35 and above are for SSB use up to 28mhz (where the next ham band starts).

Buzzing and ticking noises below ch 1 and above ch 40 are usually over the horizon radar from anywhere in the world. These signals usually come in before the DX starts because they are running several thousand watts. These signals are easily spotted if your radio has a waterfall, and you can tell there is a band is opening. There are other noises that can be heard above channel 40 that can be digital modes like SSTV, OLIVIA, ROS, PSK, OPERA, WSPR, PACKET and more…

26.715 AM – Mexican competition channel. Many of these gentlemen are in the United States and Puerto Rico as well as Mexico, and most of them speak english. If they are not in the middle of a key down, they will talk to you. If you go down there and yell at them to speak english, they will not be as friendly.

26.915 AM – DX channel

27.025 AM (Channel 6) – Competition channel (minimum 200 watt carrier on a bird meter, not a dozy meter, and no corny echos or roger beeps)

27.185 AM (Channel 19) – Trucker channel. Corny echo and roger beeps are accepted and encouraged here.

27.245 USB Digital Modes (WSPR, ROS, Olivia, PSK and Packet)

27.285 AM (Channel 28) DX Channel Corny echo and roger beeps are accepted and encouraged here.
