Group Description

Welcome to Channel 16 SSB!

This group is dedicated to reliving the “old days” of CB radio when USA channel 16, 27.155 MHz was the primary single sideband channel. We encourage reviving SSB usage of channel 16. (It’s also a good excuse to dust off all those 23 channel CB rigs with single sideband capabilities!)

In the 1960’s, 70’s, and 80’s, not only was channel 16 an active SSB channel, but a number of members of CB clubs such as the Spartans often used “sliders” to QSY down 10 kHz to 27.145 MHz, an RC (Radio Control) channel that’s often referred to as channel 15A. It was a “secret” little spot in the band where ingenious operators could leave the QRM of channel 16 behind and enjoy more private QSO’s, which often stretched across the entire nation. We hope to reactivate channel 15A (27.145 MHz) lower sideband activity, as well.

In addition to re-establishing channels 16 and 15A as SSB channels, discussion of other RC channels, and various “in between” frequencies (ex. 27.400, 27.390. 27.380, etc.) communications is also encouraged. This group is dedicated to “in-band” CB communications (i.e. 26.965 to 27.405 MHz) topics only.

RC channels are as follows:
26.995 MHz -- channel 3A
27.045 MHz -- channel 7A
27.095 MHz -- channel 11A
27.145 MHz -- channel 15A
27.195 MHz -- channel 19A

Mainly of interest to North American CB’ers, anyone is welcome to join. Acceptable posts include general discussion of channel 16 SSB, RC channel, and “in between” oddball channel communications, older CB gear, antennas, and related equipment. SWL reception reports are welcome. For-sale items should be related to CB radio only. SPAM will not be tolerated. This is not a group for discussion of “freeband” and “outband” DX topics.

**Please note: If you request membership and do not receive a response within 5 days, please email the List Owner directly.
