Lanie Dillsabout this book: CB lingo is described as the special language of Cbers. It is the colorful way truckers and other CB users on the highways chat with each other. CB slang is not difficult to use, but you do have to know it in order to feel comfortable when you start keying your mike.
Fortunately, the newly revised and updated "Official" CB Slanguage Language Dictionary with its 2000 new CB chat terms is now on Amzon Kindle. Lanie Dills, the author of this New York Times Best Seller about CB radio lingo has been called the Webster of CB jargon, and C.W. McCall of "Convoy" called the book the Cbers bible. It is now considered the nation's standard reference for CB slang.
Don't know how to get started talking CB? Afraid you will embarrass yourself the first time you hop on your new CB? Curious about what some of the outrageous CB terms you are hearing mean? All of your questions are answered in this comprehensive book. Examples are given so you can get up to speed in the shortest amount of time.
With this book, you can pick up CB radio slang quickly. You'll be able to 'ratchet jaw' with any big rigger in no time at all. It is a handy and complete reference guide that is simply the best way to learn CB jargon in the least amount of time. In fact, with this handy guide, you can break the channels with not fear of embarrassment.
Did you know that there are at least seventy-three different CB terms for law enforcement officers? And best wishes can be said in more than twenty-three different ways. Most cities in the country have a CB name. As examples, Nashville is 'Guitar Town' and Atlanta is 'Hot Lanta'.
Some people are not interested in chatting on the CB, but they enjoy monitoring and just listening in. For these folks, the dictionary and cross-reference gives them an immediate translation of the CB chatter as they travel along the expressways.
Sample CB conversations:
1. "Breaker, breaker, The Nashville Popsicle here looking for a westbound big rigger. How does it look over your left shoulder?"
Translation: Calling for a trucker driving a westbound 18-wheeler. Is there any law enforcement ahead of me?
2. "Back off the hammer. Kojak with a Kodak up ahead."
Translation: Slow down. Radar ahead.
Using CB lingo is fun, but, in order to avoid being laughed off the airways by the experienced big riggers, you need to take the time to learn CB talk.
