I always wondered about CH 9 - if it is a wasted channel. I was driving back from LV the other day and part of the trip was in heavy snow, some guy spun out into the field and down an embankment. Not injured, but embarrassed as hell. Anyway, no cell phone coverage way out there, and no one listening on CH 9 on the radio. Luckily some snow plow guy with a radio was able to call for a tow.
