About This Quiz

Did you know there are about 3.5 million truckers on the road in America? It's a massive job that takes a lot of time and a lot of hard work. Being away from home for days at a stretch isn't easy, nor is trying to drive non-stop for hours and hours on end. It can be dangerous and lonely out there, with bad food and cold nights. It's no wonder truckers have tried to come up with a few ways to keep themselves entertained and engaged for those long hauls. Enter the CB radio!

CB or Citizen's Band radio is a simple way for people to communicate short distances on a limited frequency range, ideal for truckers or whoever else feels the need to chat it up on the radio either at home or on the road. The whole CB culture really started picking up a head of steam in the 1970s and is still going strong today. One of the best parts of the whole culture is picking a CB name. You need a short, punchy, fun name that represents your sense of freedom on the radio. Your real name is just what you've been saddled with in life. Your CB radio is who you are on the inside!
