Spoke to a lady with a G6xxx number plated BMW to enquire
if she were one of us, but she'd never heard of either
amateur or ham radio.

(But that's no reason for the RSCB to be enticing
young people into their shacks in the current PC climate)

There has never been any shortage of candidates for
_REAL_ amateur / ham radio because such people naturally
gravitate to join our numbers.

How many of those who've been swept in off the streets
and out of the gutters to tackle the Fools' licence
had ever heard of us anyway?

She should read your local newspaper, your behaviour has led to several
mentions of it.

Then perhaps she had recognised you and decided playing the dumb card
was the safe option.

People who feel the need to have personalised number plates tend to
have ego issues.

This who come out with such tripe have justified inferiority complexes.

What, like those who already with a Yank extra class licence, AF6MJ,
then go for a personalised W8 one based on his M3 callsign, do you mean?

Can you imagine the scene that might have ensued, had the number plate started with M3 or M6?

You have to pity the poor woman, being accosted by a wild-eyed tramp
ranting on about amateur radio and the gangrenous degeneration of
Britland, especially one that looks like this:

She's probably having recurring nightmares.
