    If you need a proof just look at the Year when C.B. RADIO THEN and NOW. and the military use of Two way Commo Radio. At times its hectec and on c.b. is all reguler langue, cussing, or constence jabber talk. Try it our, get on the c.b. frequeny, and lission. At your state, and every where ealse.

    Hi Guys,
    Really enjoyed the podcast 132. My answer is "No" to whether or not sellers should require proof of license prior to selling radio equipment. In my case I have been a Ham since April 2015, but purchased equipment about 4 months prior to taking the test so I could get familiar with the radios and this did indeed make my test easier, only missing 1 question. My guess is that those that said "Yes" are generally lazy since they would not take the effort to justify their vote. The "No" people like me will take the time to justify their vote. I have purchased several radios from you folks, and all transactions have been superb. I haven't listened to all of your podcasts, but for sure 132 was my favorite. Keep up the great work!! All the Best in 2019 to you and your families. "The JJ" p.s I'm not a youngster, 67 yrs old.....
