10-4 Good Buddy?????

The new title of this forum.....is...."10-4 Good Buddy"!!

SERIOUSLY???? What genius came up with that one?
This lame term is used ONLY on CB, and even then it is not used any more. It is considered a slight.
This term has NOTHING to do with HAM radio.

We should start a poll to see how many of us want this changed.

Prior to the recent shift of Day light savings time, April 1st on a Monday made for some PO'd radio listeners. DJ would come in and start doing all his time checks 1 hour ahead and might mention about the time change over the weekend, (which was not until the next weekend). Made for some interesting calls from listeners... Some of which only included 4 letter words

Ah that brings back memories of being a teenager in the 70's with my Midland 13-893 CB and Avanti 5/8 wave stick.

Back it down, eastbound! You got a bear in the grass in a plain black wrapper takin' pictures at 21.4!

Seriously, it's an April Fool's joke.

FWIW, the only time I've ever heard 'break' used on amateur radio, the context was "break break break priority traffic National Weather Service Taunton". What NWS Taunton [WX1BOX] was breaking was a SKYWARN net and the traffic was a tornado warning.

I've heard "ten-four good buddy" a few times on 2M and maybe once on 75M. It's usually a sure sign that someone's operating under the influence.

I've done it once or twice to be a smartass... but that's about it... It IS amateur radio, after all...

I still have an 11m in my Jeep. Mostly for out on the trail, and traveling on the highway.
