Depends on what part of the country you are in, and which direction you are traveling. For example, in California you don't use 19 when you run north and south. Switch to 15 and you will find all the chatter, until you get to the Grapevine, then switch to 17 as you go further north. When you turn back east/west, you go back to 19. I'm not sure the origins of the channel selections, but its been that way forever, at least since I first started in trucking, which was 20 years ago. It took me at least the first 10 years just to figure out what channel I was supposed to be on, and where.
