Nothing against you guys, but...my paranoia won't permit me to publish my call sign because the FCC, God love'em, will damn near tell you what color underwear I prefer if you do a call sign look-up.

I hear ya, I pretty much screwed myself already though.  If one knows where to go find it they can find enough to do some damage.  I'm counting on the fact that very few but HAMs would actually know where to go.  False hope probably, but not much I can do about it now.

Hi, Robert from MO!!! You got yours in March!!! Good Job!!!

Ya'll really can have the FCC restrict your personal information, the private sites that archive the data as well will remove it if you ask.

This thread has piqued my interest in HAM radio. My father tried to get me into (although he was not into it himself) when I was a teenager but I gravitated to more 'interesting' things instead....now I am finding a more practical interest in becoming a HAM again. Alas the local internet searches have yielded little. Texas A&M has a club but for students only and the Bryan chapter website is nonexistent. Anyhow, maybe I will find a way to get into it. Keep up the great posts!
