Default Comunications methods used in the area.

What methods of communications do you you use in (or while in) the Winnipesaukee region?

I do remember in the 60's that "CB" was really popular for boating (prior to the "CB" licensing requirement's removal) and that "Marine Control" (callsign KBC8913) used to monitor Channel 13. From what I've read here, now that the licensing requirement for Marine has been removed, marine vhf seems to be taking over for "on the water".

At our lake my friends camp had a large bell located near the peak of the roof that was sounded by pulling on a rope. When that bell rang it meant it was time to get your butt home. It annoyed me then but I sure miss that simple device today.

We have often joked how long it would take for somebody to come looking for us if we dont return home on Sunday -

We had mixed feelings about getting our new dial telephone in the 60s—which still remains handy—on the wall today.

Dialing a number takes a very long time: calling long-distance tested our endurance. How did we survive that agony—waiting for that dial to rotate back—just to rotate it again and again?
