"Rouge" is the French word for "red".  It's also a type of facial makeup, generally red in color.

"Rogue" means unpredictable; not adhering to logical behavior, like some characters in a Star Wars movie.

Never did find out for sure if the 202 was an Icom 02AT.  Had both, couldn't tell much of a difference.  Batteries identical.  A great move on Radio Shack's part, too bad it's all just a memory now.

"Kilo Delta number Zero...."  what a dork.  Some of these guys are a crack up.....either CB lingo, or trying to sound officious like they're getting ready to launch a NASA rocket. 

Whenever you hear someone like that on the air traffic control freqs, it's always some little goober thinking it's his way of mixing it up with the big boys.

Sheesh.

You know that was the video he had to pick, c'mon now. Chickens are flock animals ya know. B'caw

I was waiting for the "waving a hand atcha" part. I had enough by 1:00. The dude meant well......

Oh well, it was You Tube after all. We have amateur radio, they have amateur cinematography. Speaking of which, who has the photobucket link to the CB Captain series?
