    Are you of the generation that had a CB Radio?

    Regardless of your feelings toward Jimmy Carter, I think we can all agree that his finest act as president was the creation of National CB Radio day. Carter designated October 4, 10/4, as a day to honor the citizens band, and to celebrate, we're giving you a chance to brush up on your APCO 10 codes.

    Some of them may surprise you. Everyone knows what "10-4" means ... but "10-40" could mean "run silent," "dead animal," or even "mental patient." The possibilities are fascinating.
