    the guys who worked for outfits like Acid Engineering used to have company cars with a two-way radio (with some mother-of-all range, because even though they didn't have to have a license you could be in Seminole and talk to somebody in Portales, or Denver City and talk to somebody in Kermit, or Odessa and talk to somebody in Seagraves). Some of those guys would switch the radio in the car off, walk in the house and cut on the base station. They didn't have home phones.
