Strange activity on CB 07

Post by Joshek » Fri Jan 25, 2019 2:14 pm

Whenever I have my scanner running through the CB channels, it stops on channel 7 for some morse code. This isn't the first time I've heard it but I thought it'd be worth asking here. Don't know what it translates to though, haven't been able to.

Being a repeater channel there is likely an active repeater on it. Registered CB repeaters need to identify with morse code (I think) every so often.

That makes much more sense now, funny how I've only ever heard it on 7 though
