Why That Handle?

So from time to to time I see some rather strange “Handle“ names of forum members. For instance, a bunch of random letters and numbers strung out together. What’s that all about?

Some like “LBM17Z71” tells me they own a 2017 Laser Blue Metallic Z71. That once was my Handle. Then I traded for a black 2018. I could have kept the same Handle but decided to trade my name as well.

Although I’ve lived in over 9 different states I was born in Maine. If you’ve ever been to Maine you might have heard the following. If you weren’t born in Maine, no matter how long you’ve lived here, you’re still from away!

I was born in Maine so I figured I could claim the handle MaineMan!

What’s the story behind your Handle?

Gusto!

It is what the FCC knows me as (my Amateur Radio station call sign).
Call signs are restricted to specific standards with only certain letters and numbers being available in certain configurations. I was able to get my first name and last initial issued as a vanity call, substituting in a number for a letter to fit the required criteria.

My handle comes from Dargel Boat Works, in Donna, Tx. I grew up in South Texas and my father always had Dargel boats. We fished the Lower Laguna Madre, between Port Mansfield and Port Isabel.
