No, "10-4" or "4-10" means "affermative" or simply "yes".
Pick a handle that best suits yourself, kind of like the handles people use on FTE! On sideband, pick a number for yourself because when talking on sideband users have number-handels rather then name-handels.
"Seventy-thirds" or "seventy-threes" means "best wishes and/or take care"
"10-20" or "whats your 20?" is "location" and "whats your location?"
If you use sideband, like I do, and you want to "break" into the conversation, instead of saying "break", or "breaker" like you would on AM, you say "station" instead. As in, "there is a station out there trying to break in. Go ahead station". Another sideband trick to let people know you want to have a conversation is to call out "station", and if you get a response or not, call out "CQ" As in "CQ, CQ, station 445 trying and standing by".
I know all of them. and all the "Q" codes. Let me know if you want more. CB/HAM radio is a underrated hobby, IMO. What type of radio and antenna do you have?
Just whatever you do, NEVER EVER call anybody a "good buddy". Thoes be some fightin' words.
yeah the last two days of school this year in the Tech center (diesel tech) we watched all of the Smokey and the Bandit movies and also Black Dog (which is a great trucker movie). i love their lingo it's great.

Mine is Sugardaddy, its been that way since the first time I drove with my dad in his truck as a little boy. I would talk on the CB to other truckers, even though I could barely understand them through their really deep truckin accents. My favorite candy at the time was Sugardaddy, hence the name.
I learned all the lingo, Smokey Bear, Polar bear (undercover), Parking Lots, Skateboards, City Kitty, Local Yocal, county bounty, pumpkin head, reefer, 'just coolin the brakes'....etc all that crap
