    Michael R. Bloomberg, businessman, former NYC mayor, philanthropist, licensed pilot, and possible future Democratic presidential candidate was a licensed ham at one time, according to Wikipedia.

    Does anyone happen to know what his former call sign was? Was he active?

    He was probably a CB'er.

    I doubt it.

    He majored in engineering at Johns Hopkins and evidently built a lot of stuff in the day.

    Maybe so, but I think he's a closet CB'er :)

    He's a politician. That makes him suspect from the get-go.

    Doesn't mean anything. I know a lot of people with high and lofty degrees that are total bricks!

    I wonder if "back in the day" he ever worked Herman Munster (1960's).
    If a person was active at all, how could they not remember their call sign?
