Re: Call sign?



Gentlemen
When i got my first callsign,i was verry happy.
Not beacause i could transmit legaly,
but beacause of the very nice suffix.
But to work on the birds ,i needed to go ``up``
and take another prefix and  take anny suffix they had.
Than we could chose our own prefix.
So now i`m pa5 but with my own `old` suffix.
But there are many dutch ham`s using there call
extra proudly thanks to the new rule`s.

Regards
