Just for S&G, I did a search of the callsign W6XRL. Here's the bio from QRZ:

in our search 4 the so cal. buzz-----ard we located 1 thru tee hunt,and
scanning we baged the bird [ buzzy boy] spider didnot do this it was
tom kf6ujp who owns the buzzard! and biw ,ydo,and roy tucker monitor
147.435 or 145.460 to hear the north american BUZZ------ARD 73S OLD
MAN CAPTAIN STEWART SHIP TO SHORE. A GOOD BUZZ ARD IS WORTH? 20 CENTS
5 CENTS MORE THE THE BEAGELS 15 CENTS FOOTBALL CARD!

Apparently it's a club of some sort....if you can figure this nonsense out, you're a better man than I!

I saw this episode of the Munsters a few months ago and remembered that Herman's make-believe ham call was W6XR4 -- which, of course, isn't a ham call. It definitely wasn't W6XRL.

I'm thinking the call he was using was W6XRL4. I may be wrong. I dropped the 4 to make it a "legit" call.

Maybe it was a special event call :-)

Thanks for posting this!  I sent the link to my girlfriend/signif other.  Her exact words in response were "That is sooo you!"  LOL!....The only problem is, I play the drums! I can't sing. (then again, neither can Herman).

I do recall that Munster's callsign had two distinct numbers that were not consecutive.

Ok, now that's funny!

Now, did they really need the disclaimer at the bottom?

Now, that's scarey!!!

I did, notice the frequency. What you read here is put into "print" the same kind of dreck you'll hear on the 147.435 repeater in Los Angeles. This clown or clowns are obviously a looser or club of loosers that hang out there.

http://www.435online.com/

For what it's worth, some of these morons, including the repeater owner, managed to get upgraded and some how found their way onto 75M and tried to establish the same kind of presence on a frequency some friends and I hung out on. It was most amusing, kind of like Napolean Bonaparte taking on a fleet of tallships from a rowboat, all with the same ego. They left in disgrace and as far as I know chose to just stay on their pathetic little repeater who's culture makes CB look like, oh, I don't know, the 160 M band, I guess.
