Pre cell phones, I can remember as a child everyone had a CB Radio in their car and house. My dad used to stay up to all hours of the night and talk on the radio to people all over the world. People would have "handles" and would have QSL cards - these were cards that had your handle printed on them and you would mail them to who ever you talked to. We had cards from all over the world.
I am from SC and everyone had handles. My parents were "Alligator Hunter" and "Peaches" whilst my brothers were "Slim Jim" and "Big Foot". My sisters and I were "Wendy", "Snowflake", and "Little Bo Peep". Anytime my brothers were "on the road" (they were long distance truck drivers) we would always get excited talking to them.
Please share your memories with us and let us know what your handle was!
