    Default Radio Operators

    Just out of curiosity, how many of you guy are also Amateur Radio operators? I figure there has to be some cross pollination between the two fields

    I'm a Ham Op as well.
    Advanced Class for a long while.

    But I wonder if it's a good thing to throw call signs out on the net, given the ability ( if you are good in the Call Book ) to obtain too much information about yourself?

    We operate from HF to Microwave, mostly HF and VHF though.

    Somewhere I have a microwave oven with an antenna jack on the back and a microphone. ( I'll probably get cancer from operating that thing years ago )

    I'm also a ham radio operator. You have a point Harcosparky about posting your callsign.

    I used to have my First Class Ticket, then a advanced amateur. You are not suppose to give out information these days, especially if you give a location with your call sign.

    These days I have lost interest in such things, so I buy welders and weld.

    Radio Operator?

    Nah,,,,,,,
    I'm still trying to figure out how to make the VCR stop blinking '12:00' over and over.

    Actually it's interesting to just googl a call sign ....

    For example one call sign posted in here worked Field Day from the summit of Grass Mountain in 1969. They ran a class 1A station.

    Another call sign worked the June 1998 VHF QSO Party, scored 299 points on 144 Mhz and 103 points on 432.

    And yet another ham here, licensed a looong time seems to not have done much in the way of contests or club activity.

    I didn't go looking for any non-ham related data but I do use Google in the course of working other hams on HF from time to time.
