    I'm a general XXYZZ, not active now as I sold my ham gear. I have a little 3-1/2 year old daughter I devote all my time to for now. Never knew what it felt like before with my other kids when I worked day and night.
    Edited to remove your call sign for OPSEC reasons. PM any admin or mod with questions. - ghrit

    I don't know all the rules here yet, but I don't understand removing my amateur radio call sign because anyone can see it on QRZ?

    Anyone can find you if they know to look up your call on QRZ. It isn't a rule, so to say, it's simply one more way to make it more difficult for someone to find you and give you fits. Without your call posted here, it's a bit more difficult for anyone to search you out for whatever reason they may have. We don't (yet) know how sensitive you are toward anonymity, so we take it as tho' you would prefer to be hard to find. Anyway, welcome aboard.

    Welcome to our tree. Good group here. We like to share our experiences and some of it actually passes for knowledge!
    Ham myself. General class. But like you, no HF rigs. Just a dual bander in the Jeep and a few old UHF commercial radios retuned down to under 450 meg.

    It is easily identifiable as you. Most folks here, keep their id's private. However, @BTPost keeps a record of hams, (such as I) for contacting, shouldn the need arise. I suggested the removal of your call sign to protect your privacy.

    Ok I understand, I thought maybe it was removed because I said I'm not active. My license is active but I chose not to be for now for my little girl. Anyway I understand now and say thank you. :)
