CB 10 codes

 

The following is a list of CB radio "10 codes" (or APCO codes). Ten codes are an abbreviated way of sending messages, some of which are very common among those that use CB radios frequently or professionally. If you're new to the CB world, take a look at the list below to get familiar with some codes you may hear.

 

As you can imagine, some are more popular than others. I don't recommend that you memorize the list below, just use it as a reference if you hear something that you're not sure about.
