That's good, nice and simple and easy to remember . . . that will help, given the language barrier.

Used to take 2 weeks to get your callsign.


Good luck with CW..


:ROFLMAO:

-.- .--- --... --.- --.- --.-



Also, your callsign is public information, which will return with your address.

So, if you get a license, use a PO box, or a different address, otherwise people will know where you live.

Valid point on the address, I was under the impression it had to be where the station was...

Get a vanity callsign.

The prefixes are K, N, or W.
Then a single number which indicates what region the callsign was issued, but you don't have to keep your 7 call
Then 3 letters.


(for a tech)


You can also have fun with the 1 and the 0 as letters I and O... like K1LLA (taken), or K9COP (also taken)

Go to http://www.ae7q.com/query/ to see what is taken and what is available. Most people choose something that means something to them. Could be your initials, for example.

I missed out on N1CAD (as in, the battery chemistry) by a couple days, as someone applied for it before I did..

Once you look it up and see it's not taken, you can log into FCC ULS and file a modification, and request a vanity callsign. It takes a couple weeks and is automatically granted provided you follow the rules and it's not already in use or restricted.

https://www.fcc.gov/wireless/bureau-divisions/mobility-division/amateur-radio-service/amateur-call-sign-systems#sequential-call-sign-system

It's currently free, but they're talking about establishing a fee for it... So....

so where exactly in the clusterfuckery of FCC's website does one apply for vanity call sign? i couldn't figure it out for shit...

ETA: nevermind, i found it https://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsEntry/licManager/login.jsp and then on the right hand side there is a "request vanity call sign" link

Yeah it's used in place of social security number.

Takes a few seconds to get one from them.
