Mine is WNQ...wait a minute. If I post my GMRS callsign, within a few minutes anyone can find my home address, get a picture of my house and my cars parked in front, get my current home value, get my phone numbers and email addresses, social media info, yearly income and so on.

And from social media you will probably know when I'm out of town or on vacation and my house is unoccupied and ripe for theft, etc. Why would I do that???

Perhaps we should start a thread on paranoia?

On the other hand, just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean they're not out go get you.

After years of playing with blister pack FRS/GMRS "walkie talkies", I finally picked up a pair of BaoFeng GT-3TP radios and registered for an official GMRS license: Call Sign WRAR673.

I used to live up the road from you. In the 50s and 60s, I lived in Cass, a little community north of Ozark. We lived in a valley near the Mulberry River. No TV, no radio and certainly no satellite. (At night I sometimes tried to use my cat whisker radio to pick up some of the clear channel stations around the country.) I remember when we wired the house and put in a bathroom (We kept the outhouse as a backup and, yes, we used a Sears catalog.) We lived off what we raised and had no money but, looking back, I was happy. Those were good times to me.

Hey KK4JUG

Thanks for the reply
That is still beautiful country, but there are wires everywhere now.
One of my favorite rides is from Oark to Tuner Bend along the Mulberry.
The simple life is bad, at all.

Hope to hear you on the air around here someday.

Deland Florida for those that may ask 30-45 mins west of Daytona beach depending on how heavy your foot is. Hardly in that area though much these days Drive trucks over the road. most of my off time is spent in md of the panhandle of Florida around the Panama City area
