de W0LKC

Yay :wave:

I am now have a callsign of W0LKC. In retrospect, I probably would've liked to have gotten N0LKC....but when I was checking the vanity callsign database, W0LKC was shows as a 1x3 callsign that was immediately available. There were no 2x3 in "Immediately Available".

Later I looked under the "Date Controlled" area....and saw that N0LKC was available, and indicated as "Immediately Available". I updated my application for vanity callsign to include this option, and then later found out that it resets the 18 day clock on the processing...and that the W0LKC request had already been approved, but the grant was waiting for the 18 day clock. Plus I just added it to the list of requested callsigns, I didn't make it the more desirable one. And, I choose not to fiddle with the application again to further delay things.

Basically, the difference is which is easier to say under which circumstance.

Namely, to me it seemed that it would be easier to say "Whis-key--Ze-ro" than to say "No-vem-ber--Ze-ro". OTOH, it seems it would be easier to say "En--Ze-ro" than to say "Dou-ble-you--Ze-ro".

Oh well....we'll see which one I use on the air.... |-|

FWIW, there were also 2x3 callsigns available on the date controlled and being shown as immediately available. But neither KB0 nor KC0 interested me enough to include it in the amendment to my amendment application. Especially since it seemed quite likely that I would get a 1x3.... &#59;D

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
