TAXICAB RADIO 10-CODE CHART

RADIO CODES VARY FROM COMPANY TO COMPANY AND PLACE TO PLACE
HERE ARE A FEW OF THE CODE LISTS FOR COMPARISON.
DRIVERS AND DISPATCHERS EVERYWHERE--IF YOU EMAIL ME YOUR
CODES, I'LL INCLUDE THEM HERE.
Radio codes are an interesting and often quite expressive language. I often use
'10-9?' instead of 'say what?' off the radio, which can mean 'I can't believe you
really said that!' as well as 'I didn't hear you.'

As you can see, like any language, radio codes have their similarities and their differences.
They evolve according to need and custom. If you're interested, check my proposed
