    We all talk to each other on the air. There is a good chance that many of us have talk to each other without knowing it.

    Many of us may have a local Persona that differs from our online persona.

    In my city I am known as Stratocaster. However, online, I am known as Loose Cannon. If you reach me on sideband I will use the numbers 410.

    So, how are the rest of you identified on DX Communications as opposed to your local handle?

    I'm just known as "Triple 7" on the airwaves. Both AM and SSB. Cornpatch of Iowa. Can't miss my "unusual" sounding Cobra 2000 GTL. :LOL:

    There is already a local guy called Shade Tree. I don't want to cause a bunch of confusion so I just go by 808. When I was a kid my handle was Hot Wheels but I don't use that one anymore. I am looking for a new handle but nothing seems to feel right so I guess for now I am just 808.

    My old non-linear name was "The Triple Nickel, The 555 in Central Texas" or where ever I was at the time. My name has been copied many, many times, I have been the triple nickel for over fifty years.

    Well on the forums, I'm dozerman, from the work I did for 20 yrs in the coal mines in wva, Illinois and Ky. Since moving to Tennessee, I've had to change handles to keep confusion down. Here in Milan on ch 22, I'm jonesy. But when I stretch my coax out and talk across the road, I'm 277. I'm still the same asshole either way.

    I've heard a triple nickel and 555 central Texas on sideband quite a few times.
    I used 309 in the land of Lincoln but that is going to change when I get back on the air. Just moved to south east AL last weekend.

    That was probably me. I have been copied many times but never successfully. At one time I was using "The Hurricane Five Five Five" because some little squirt started claiming my call. I told him it's not the call that makes it, it is the operator, and he did not have enough class to pull it off. Which he then launched into a 30 minute profanity laced tirade. When he unkeyed all of the people who knew me told him to shut up and get off the air, which started it all over again.

    I go by 'World Radio Eleven' or 'WR-11' on SSB.
    Locals call me 'the Doc' or 'Doc' on AM mode because I fix/tune their radios.

    Back in the 70s it was Spiderman. Not a very original handle, but my logo sure was. An artist friend of mine did it for me. The body of a tarantula with Groucho Marx's head. (You young guys won't know who I'm talking about.)

    These days, just Riverman.
