Well if I do will people stop beating me to death for not having a call?  Or are they going keep resurrecting the same old, tired old discussion of no callsign shut up?

Jazzman,  just give your call sign, it's not gonna hurt anything. I keep SWMAN because it is sort of hard to change it on here. That was my username 15 years ago here and I just kept it. If someone asks my call I just give it, never had any problem doing that. 73. Jim. W5JJG.

What if I don't have a callsign yet but want to join in on the forums?  What is wrong with that?

SWMAN nobody takes you serious on this site unless you post your callsign as your user name, you must know that by now.  If you actually have a callsign update your user name to your actual call.  It's actually very easy to do as N6MST suggested.  Good luck.

I am not a ham and I've made that crystal-clear in most of my posts. But my full name is in there if you click on my handle, and that in/of itself is more info than I have given in other forums I am joined with. I've posted a bit here and hams have never seemed to have a problem with the fact that I don't have a callsign. Very helpful they've been to me and I am grateful. So I don't see what problem you'd have.

Well I appreciate the advice HFCRUSR and I'm glad you have had good luck this is a great site.  I have tried to ask questions and give my thoughts  regarding ham radio here on eham.  It seems that when people don't agree with my thoughts the only thing they have to say or come back with is I don't have a callsign nothing I say matters.  Thanks again for the advice.

I put non ham id's on ignore immediately. I would not talk to someone on the street in a mask either. Unless it's Halloween. YMMV

Nobody is beating you to death.

If you don't have a license, why are you here?

Interesting that many of the anonymous posters here also have a victim mentality...

In the last decade or so of being on ham radio forums I have never heard of a single incident of someone using their callsign on a forum resulting in some sort of incident (security / burglary / threat carried out / etc). I see no issue with using your callsign in the forums. Most people don't even know what ham radio is.. most of the people that come to these forums are other hams or radio enthusiasts.

90% of the Internet behaves this way.
