To find the owner of a Yaesu VX-7R handheld transceiver that has no identification and no alphanumerics programmed into it.
I was sitting in the ham shack, late one evening, when the phone rang. I checked the caller ID and saw that it was a local paramedic. I assumed he wanted me to cover his shift for the rest of the evening. I was still anticipating his request when he tells me that a friend of his was bicycling north of town when he noticed something on the side of the road. It was a handheld radio with a “very long antenna and a whole bunch of frequencies that did not look familiar.” He thought it might be a ham radio and knowing I was a ham, he informed me he had turned it over to the local police department. I thanked him for the information and immediately called the police dispatcher and after she confirmed that a radio had indeed been turned in, I told her I would be right over.
