communications. Two-way plain language communications are communications 

without codes or coded messages. Operating signals such as ``ten codes''

    (b) You may use your CB station to transmit a tone signal only when 

the signal is used to make contact or to continue communications. 

(Examples of circuits using these signals are tone operated squelch and

last no longer than 15 seconds at one time. If the signal is a 

subaudible tone, it may be transmitted continuously only as long as you 

are talking.

    (c) You may use your CB station to transmit one-way communications 

(messages which are not intended to establish communications between two 

or more particular CB stations) only for emergency communications, 

traveler assistance, brief tests (radio checks) or voice paging.
