Default Dad's License

From what I remember, my dad's was KBX0073, don't know how I remember that after 35+ years. He had a Radio Shack 40-channel CB with RS antenna, and it use to be temporarily installed/used in whichever vehicle we took on our family vacations. He about had a fit when I installed his CB in his 72 Datsun pickup, in '89. "You can't use my license, I haven't renewed it since 82." Guess he didn't hear that licenses were no longer needed/required. My best friends and I were always on them, one of my best friends and I used our dads' radios and our other best friend went out and bought the cheapest radio and antenna setup he could find.

Monday, I finally finished installing my Uniden PC122XL and new coax & antenna. Having some issues with my install, started a thread to figure out what is "wrong with my install."

My son is wanting to get into HAM, so I'm looking at getting my license and getting us into it. A local friend of mine, his wife and adult daughter are HAMs, and they were telling me that I don't need to know code to get it, BONUS!!! Although, I may eventually get my code license.
