From Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens_band_radio
Citizens band radio (also known as CB radio) is, in
many countries, a system of short-distance radio communications between
individuals on a selection of 40 channels within the 27 MHz (11 m) band. Citizens band is distinct from other Personal radio service allocations such as FRS, GMRS, MURS, UHF CB and the Amateur Radio Service ("ham"
radio). In many countries, CB operation does not require a license, and
(unlike amateur radio) it may be used for business or personal
communications. Like many other two-way radio
services, citizens band channels are shared by many users. Only one
station may transmit at a time; other stations must listen and wait for
the shared channel to be available. It is customary for stations waiting
to use a shared channel to broadcast the single word "Break" during a
lull in the conversation. This informs people using the channel that
others are waiting.
A number of countries have created similar radio services, with
varying technical standards and requirements for licensing. While they
may be known by other names, such as the General Radio Service in
they often use similar frequencies (26 to 28 MHz), have similar uses,
and similar technical standards. Although licenses may be required,
eligibility is generally simple. Some countries also have personal radio services in the UHF band, such as the European PMR446 and the Australian UHF CB. Currently, no license is required for CB use in the United States.
