Is it a good idea or a security risk for yourself and your family?

It's an FCC requirement to identify your radio transmissions; lots of hams around the world know me as "K7KBN" rather than any other means.  I have the license.  What's the problem?

KTN,
 Good song, that brings back a lot of good memories. Good choice. I wish they still wrote good music like that.

That was (is) a good tune. Never saw the video till now. They don't make them like that anymore.

You are correct!

Unless you're in the witness protection program or some sort of operative, what are hiding from? Being anonymous does not make one a troll in my opinion. But it's a special kind of coward who chooses to be a troll while hiding behind an anonymous handle.

Seriously... how do you think that identifying yourself by your call sign on this --or any other-- web site would be a security risk to you and/or your family?   Huh

He's a pirate  Wink , no way he is a licensed ham... If he won't ID here, he won't ID on HF or a repeater either.. someone could copy the call sign and look him up...oh my...

Many years ago - during the height of the 14.313 Wars - an anonymous voice remarked that using your call sign on the frequency was akin to using your real name in a brothel.

Maybe with some it's similar.

It is possible to have a PO box as your FCC address
