    It doesn’t mention “radio only” in your post.

    There’s quite a few. Not limited to CB given the ones you’ve listed.

    Etiquette might be more The How To of over-air TX. In which case CB is notorious. But many if not most terms once popular disappeared ages ago (if we are speaking of AM-19 only).

    Much of what remains can be truck-centric versus CB or Amateur in general.

    Once speed limits climbed out of the basement, trucker usage fell off.

    Etiquette is awareness of volatile conditions affecting TX/RX. Being direct is easiest. Short phrases. No sentences by Cardinal Newman or Henry James.

    Have a radio turned on. The general usage you hear is adequate to the purpose.

    NATO Phonetic Alphabet use NEVER hurts.

    That's exactly what I thought when reading the title, thought oh boy you mean there's still etiquette in this world period...... I know, there are a few with respectful conversations but out on the road man there's definitely a lack of it!

    While traveling down to Fl a few years ago some gal kept hollering something about "commercial company." I had no idea what that meant. :whistle:

    In Amarillo we have the guy claiming to be a driver saying kick it up to 27 for that "chicken feed" or "go fast". He's been around for years so I don't think he's a driver. There's the occasional "working girl" for that "commercial company" as well. How about that "seat cover" in the red convertible west bound just past the 73 exit... haha it took me a while to figure that one out.

    If you are on 27.555 you might be asked to QSY to another frequency that is quiet to continue the QSO.

    West Memphis infamous for same. Late-night laid-back Negro FM disc jockey sound. Almost a murmur.
    . “Kick it back to 27 for the real deal”

    And you thought you’d found a late night inner-city jazz station.
    Pharaoh Sanders & Sun Ra.

    “Next up, Brutha Morgan’s, Sidewinder”

    I remember her.......Made me do a "double take on the Interstate", resulting with an immediate "Flip-flop" to "Cold trail" her, but then on the "backside" I had the "Bubble gum" flashing in the rearview. That "Smokie" wrote me a "Green Stamp" for traffic violation, Improper Lane Usage......,but "Mr. Bear".....I used the "Green Strip". So much for catching up to those "Ta-Ta's"........

    [On the CB]
    Ah, breaker one-nine, this here's the Rubber Duck. You gotta copy on me, Pig Pen, c'mon? Ah, yeah, 10-4, Pig Pen, fer shure, fer shure. By golly, it's clean clear to Flag Town, c'mon. Yeah, that's a big 10-4 there, Pig Pen, yeah, we definitely got the front door, good buddy. Mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a convoy.....
