KAE9013 here. First issued 12/1992....before the creation of FRS and the unlicensed bubble pack radio invasion! KAE9013 also predates the FCC's Universal Licensing System (ULS). The callsign follows the format of an old CB callsign.

Looks like I've got the oldest still active GMRS callsign listed so far (KAE9013, issued 12/1992).

The local REACT organization in my area (Nashua REACT Inc.) had KAD0610, issued in 1986. They let it expire in 2000 which also ended their grandfathered use of GMRS on 462.675.

what485 sounds legit for me. Too bad they won't issue a vanity callsign for this spectrum/service.
