Yeah we went with privacy codes after I had to spend half an hour in the car at NJMP years ago listening to some terrified person who had such a death grip on the wheel he kept the radio keyed the whole time while going "ohmigod ohmigod ohmigod ohmigod holyshit holyshit holyshit imgonnadie imgonnadie imgonnadie"
How does a privacy code fix a guy stuck mic on a channel? He's still broadcasting.
There is no way from the drivers seat to turn the radio off. With privacy channels at least I don't have to hear him.
You should mount your radio somewhere else then. We've never had to use it but many radios, ours included, have an easy-enough-to-change-while-driving Ch. 1 / Ch. 2 button that you can pre-program. If our driver decides the channel we're on is too crowded or someone gets a stuck mic he can call in or signal as he goes by to switch channels.
