KLX8596.

Dad had to get it since I was only 14. Started out with a 6-channel Radio Shack mobile CB. Then I got my ham radio license a couple of years later and CB fell by the wayside.

Not sure I even have a CB radio any more, although there may be one in a box in the garage somewhere. . .

KOA-8687 used to receive all the QSL cards from people I got from skip. Amazed by how we could talk with someone so far away

I think Ohio still has a CB call sign posted on the blue signs at the state lines

Sound familiar to a few of you?

Wake up, turn the CB "ON" and the usual local traffic is nil. Clue 2: they're all using their call letters. Next: Phone rings and you get it straight up: "Uncle Charlie's in town - white van". And any time a white van parks nearby you nearly have a heat ache until the "All Clear" is given.

I remember both our CB radio license (from the 70s) for some weird reason..

XM225882 and XM225883

also had a car telephone(radio telephone) license JJ44037. Some were XJ as well I think.

I can remember a MC number I had back in the 80s... yet I can't remember what I had for supper yesterday.. funny how our brains work.

In the 1980s I spotted an FCC white van on a hill in town overlooking the Los Angeles harbor. I knocked on the door and had a nice chat with the field engineer and he gave me a tour of the van. Most people would not know what it was except for a raised fiberglass top and a rotor with mast mounted on the rear bumper. I have a picture of that van somewhere.

If you get a knock on the door from the FCC it will not be the van, that happened to me and the field engineers were in a Ford sedan with blackwall tires and small hub caps.
