Ack! I went to see Smokey and the Bandit on my 16th birthday. (Maybe that explains why I've turned out like I have.)
My dad's call sign was KEM-4599. I think we had to renew it a couple of times, and then nobody bothered anymore, and then it was no longer required.
And now? I have a big Midland battery-eater walkie talkie around here somewhere.
