anyway... it was only a vague reeerence to CB... and I am happy to
distance ourselves from CB as much as possible.
ALSO, I find it bad that all the documents in the FRS packages offer
NOTHING IN THE WAY OF USER EDUCATION about how to use a radio and proper
At the beach, you hear "DADDY", then "DADDY! WHere are you !"
Ie, no callsigns....
I think the docs shouls "suggest to users the use of personal callsigns"
