Channel 6 is what they call the "Super Bowl". It is where all the high power 1KW+ stations operate. If you go to youtube and put in Superbowl channel 6 you will get hundreds of videos showing what goes on on that channel

"No Excuses On The Bowl" is the motto of CB channel 6 - 27.025 MHz (27025 kHz since this is HF Underground Wink).

Even 1 kilowatt stations are considered "mud ducks" on channel 6.  Next time you hear lots of activity on channel 6/27.025, check out the following "big radio" channels:

26.555 MHz / 26555 kHz (LSB) - Spanish-speaking stations from Mexico, Miami, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, etc
26.585 MHz / 26585 kHz (AM) - Mexico's version of CB Channel 6 (see also: 26705 AM, 26715 AM, 26725 AM, etc)
26.705 MHz / 26705 kHz (AM) - "La 705" (mostly Spanish-speaking stations from Puerto Rico, Miami, Dominican Republic, etc)
26.715 MHz / 26715 kHz (AM) - "La 715" see 26705 AM
26.725 MHz / 26725 kHz (AM) - "La 725" see 26705 AM and 26715 AM
26.915 MHz / 26915 kHz (AM) - often referred to as "915" or "36 low" - very active in the Southern USA
26.955 MHz / 26955 kHz (AM)
27.085 MHz / 27085 kHz (AM) - CB Channel 11 - the original CB calling channel back in the 23-channel days
27.265 MHz / 27265 kHz (AM) - CB Channel 26 - very active in the Southern USA
27.285 MHz / 27285 kHz (AM) - CB Channel 28 - very active in the Southern USA


When the skip is really rolling, you'll find the guys with the "big radios" on all sorts of frequencies...within the legal 40 channel, below channel 1, and above channel 40.  26915 AM is one of the most popular ones, at least when it comes to out-of-band (aka "freeband") frequencies.
