English term or phrase: Breaker // Breaker one
From the Citizens Band Jargon:

"Breaker one, breaker one"

at the beginning of a message.

I found a meaning in Internet, but I don't know how to say it in Spanish:

Break: Often used to initiate communications with another station. Used in a variety of ways,- e.g., break for information (request to anyone who hears the call to respond with information), break for anyone on (request, usually for a Smokey report or road conditions), for anyone on a certain highway, etc.

Breaker: A term, along with "Break," used when a CB operator wants others on a channel to break off routine chatter: "Breaker. Breaker.,, Also refers to the person who is calling: "Hold on, Pink Panther, we got a breaker." See also "button-pusher."

Any idea?
