    Channel 19 is the common frequency for open chat/general information on CB radios. Think of it as a verbal chat room....everyone can hear and respond to what's being said. The "breaker 1-9" is just slang to announce that you were about to broadcast.

    "Breaker" is cb slang & is a polite way of asking for permission to speak or for asking if anyone is on the radio. "1-9" is the cb channel 19.
