I think "handle" and "name" have different meanings.

"Handle" refers to a person's "radio name" or identification on the radio
which can be different from his/her actual name. Nowadays, though, the
two
are almost always the same. But the term "handle" initially had that
specific meaning; hence the unique word to describe it.


Good evening, George.

I would have to disagree. Since 1963 when I was first licensed, "handle"
and "name" have always meant the same thing. CB'ers took to using
"handle" to mean "radio name", but hams ... except for those that came
from originally being CB'ers ... always used "handle" to mean "name".

I agree with Rick. Hams have always used the term "Handle" and name
synonymously.
And CB'ers ALWAYS *******ize ham radio traditions.
My pet peeve is hearing "hams" say "My first personal is"..........
whatever their name is.

Also, when using Morse, "Name" is easier/faster to spell than "handle". ;-)
