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

Yes. Although with a full name, there's a few ways to find an address. Even easier if the person owns property.

You can also use the address of a business, a friend, a relative, a neighbor -- ANY address at which you can receive mail delivered by the USPS:

ยง97.23   Mailing address.

Each license grant must show the grantee's correct name and mailing address. The mailing address must be in an area where the amateur service is regulated by the FCC and where the grantee can receive mail delivery by the United States Postal Service. Revocation of the station license or suspension of the operator license may result when correspondence from the FCC is returned as undeliverable because the grantee failed to provide the correct mailing address.

Just Google your callsign.  You might be surprised at the information you find!

Hey! I have callsign license plates on the front and rear of my vehicle.  Anyone that sees my plates can find me on with their computer.  You can't do that with the generic state issued plates.

I've had many "eyeball contacts" in a parking lot because of my plates.   Grin

Depends on the name. Steve Cooper ... good luck. Bruno Zambon ... easier! As well if the activity is in a computerized jurisdiction or not.

I just went thru this finding the men in my HS (located in the middle of nowhere) graduation class. Fortunately none of the women in my class moved away and all are in f/b. The men, well many are not on f/b, do not live local, have moved, don't answer the d@mn phone if they don't recognize(remember) the name, and few middle names are known, but at least I had a good idea what year they were born. As it turns out, people are much easier to locate when they have an obituary. Sad

Well, other forums that I have been on do not require your personal information and everyone provides a name for themselves but that's it a name on the forum.  They don't give their name address and pictures of the family E-mail ETC...  Your callsign will.  Anyway please be safe.

I suppose that's one of the "occupational hazards" of fully participating in ham radio, IMO.

I guess this is a sign of the times!
Maybe a sign of the fear many feel in a changing society.
Maybe we rural dwellers are behind the times ...but
my handle is Ross, VK2NZA and a warm handshake.

Hi Ross.  Consider yourself warmly and enthusiastically greeted.

Let me say this.  On other forums they don't question your knowledge based on your name.

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

Why don't you cast around and come up with a new topic instead of resurrecting the same old, tired discussions that were beaten to death 10 years ago?
