National CB Radio Day 2013

Today is a special day for Citizens Band enthusiasts. It’s National CB Radio Day!

On October 2, 1978, President Jimmy Carter issued a statement proclaiming October 4 (10-4) as National CB Radio Day. He acknowledged the use of CB radio for emergency communications both on and off the road and noted that the use of radio enabled citizens to actively participate in the enhancement of public safety.

The CB radio is also allowed to participate in the once a year SET - Simulated Emergency Test that most counties should conduct between Amateur Radio, public service radio, GMRS and even FRS if possible.
