Default Remember your CB radio call sign?

Just curious how many of you old timers on here still remember your CB radio call sign from the '60s and '70s?

Wonder it there is an FCC database listing all the old CB call signs, locations and names? That would sure bring back a lot of memories.

That was back in 1963

I am amazed that I can remember that far back.

Yep. I remember the principal coming into my first grade class and talking to the teacher. He came in twice; once to say JFK was shot and once to say he was dead. Oops. A bit off topic. Sorry.
