Honestly I'm not sure why people would post their full name and address on a public internet forum, opens lots of doors for identity theft in todays world. But then again, maybe that's just me and my personal security paranoia. Back to our regularly scheduled thread.

It seems that the FCC database routinely skips numbers. Sometime it skips a number or two, but from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3, it skipped approximately 300 numbers. What's up with that?

Shouldn't that be WKRP in Cincinnati ? "Ha Ha" Just kindding.
I let my GMRS lic expire and got a new Call Sign when I reapplied. But there are thousands out there that never get a lic. I wonder does the FCC ever enforce that? I guess with the low power it's hard to unless someone is being a nescience. And a lot of people that have a lic, don't seem to use their Call Signs either especially if they just do portable to portable, like hunting.
It's too bad they dropped the Lic. on CB's.
Back in the day your family could listen to CB talk, now it's cursing and trash and filth on the CB channels.

And I don't mind. Don't have all the children like on 27 MHz (aka CB), and don't have the die hard stringent rules of Amateur radio. Nothing against CB and/or ham radio, it's just not for me.
