CB Radio 10 Codes

The following is a list of CB radio "10 codes". Ten codes are an abbreviated way of sending messages, some of which are very common among those that use CB radios frequently or professionally. If you're new to the CB world, take a look at the list below to get familiar with some codes you may hear.

As you can imagine, some are more popular than others. I don't recommend that you memorize the list below, just use it as a reference if you hear something that you're not sure about. The list of 10 codes below was taken from the manual of a Cobra CB Radio.
