    And if you have a vanity call, what was your purpose in picking that specific one?

    Ill start. KD5WLN was what the FCC gave me. duhhhh boooooorrrrrrinnnngggg. So I got K5ILO with out the 5 it spells KILO! (at the time i thoughth this was the most impressive thing I have ever contemplated)

    KB4IFS Always has been and will probably stay that way. I have to agree with my wife, it's like a nickname.

    I assume call signs are reassigned when they become dormant. If this is correct and my father's call sign has been assigned to someone else, is it possible to get the new user to transfer it to me (if in fact they were willing to do so)?

    When I was first licensed as a novice in 1964, the call I was issued was WN5LNG. It was changed to WA5LNG when I passed my General in April, 1965. I kept that call until I became an attorney in 1999. My initials weren't available, so I became K5LAW.

    My British call, G0JCZ, was assigned to me in 1987, and I've kept it ever since. I would love to really get my initials in the form of M0PJM, but they won't issue the call to me, even though MAA-MZZ is a British callsign block. (sigh)

    (For the record, the callsign on the Titanic was MGY. It has never been reissued.)

    I doubt if they would allow the transfer through regular channels, but a special exception might be made since family members are given preference. If it has already been assigned, this could be a problem. Have you checked to see if it is? Go to QRZ.COM and look it up.

    Depending on the style of the call, if it is not reissued, you should be able to get it as long as you qualify for the class of license for which that style of callsign is issued.

    I used to be KB1HSK (Ham Super Killowatt)
    My nickname has always been PJ, one of my ham club members told me N1PJ was up on VanityHQ. Being an extra I jumped on it right away. I like it, I have always wanted a 1*2 call.

    My call, AC6XA, is what the FCC sent me. I'd only take a vanity call if I could find a 2x1 that starts with A and has a 6 or 7 in it. I'm picky!

    Yeah but why make it easy for them?

    While your at it why don't you register all your guns and submit them for "Ballistic Finger Printing"? And stop by and give the FBI a DNA sample, what the heck you have nothing to fear, you haven't committed any crimes.

    I happen to agree with Jen.

    I'm a HAM and I won't post my call sign here.
