"I would advise you to not use "KC2GWX" as your screen name any more, and to change it where possible."

Well I knew the risk before I took it. I tell other hams about this all the time. I guess I am just too trusting.

"LOL, you would have freaked. I have done that to people, its so fun. Anyway, I did it to see your reaction, and only expected you to ask me how I knew your dad's name."

I wouldn't have been too suprised. I have done this myself to other hams! On the internet, not on the phone. But the reaction is the same.

"Why should you trust me with that information? You shouldn't."

You are probably right. However, if anyone truly want my name badly, they could probably find it anyway. I could probably find your Dad's, like Allen, or something. A lot of hams use their calls for screen-names, I guess us hams are a trusting bunch.....

If I consider this later to be a problem, I will change it. But for now I will keep it. Thank you for your concern!

Sam, KC2GWX
