With the buzz of the truckers rallying up in Ottawa, there's now a buzz in the USA of such a rally in February 2022, somewhere. So, it might be interesting to scan the 40 channels for truckers talking about this, around CH19 and +/- a few channels from there. And, if there is such a rally(s), then CB scanning would be essential.
I was asked if I liked the 80's pop band The Go-Go's, and I answered that I listened to them, like many other Top 40 pop bands of the time, so Eh. However, I did mention that I did kind of feel sorry for them, since I thought that the band members couldn't have sex. I was then asked, "What do you mean?" My reply was, "Duh... They sing about it themselves, their lips are sealed!".

I've had a CB on here for months, usually on ch 19 (sometimes on 13, where a local company is). Have yet to hear anything regarding the convoy. Today the band was wildly open, but never heard anything about the convoy.

I know that the Canadian truckers also have the VHF LADD, but I don't know how much they use that vs CB.
