On February 2, 2021, in response to a Freedom of Information request, Ofcom released a database of amateur radio callsigns for the UK and Crown Dependencies

The database can be useful for people wanting to apply for a specific call sign as it shows calls which are not available for issue.

Those who've passed the RSGB Full exam have the option of applying for callsigns from the G and M call blocks including G3, G4, G5 and M5. Details of how to apply are at
http://www.southgatearc.org/news/2020/november/g-callsigns-for-those-passing-full-exam.htm

It's understood someone who has passed the Intermediate can select callsigns from either the 2E0 or 2E1 call blocks and Foundation the M3, M6 or M7 blocks. Of those only 2E0 or M7 can be done online, for the others a manual application mentioned above is required.

Ofcom released a spreadsheet containing 146,763 callsigns with a status of either Allocated or Reserved.

Status categorisation:

• ‘Allocated’ means that the callsign is currently assigned to a station under an Amateur Radio licence. It is therefore not currently available for assignment to anyone else.

• ‘Reserved’ means that the callsign has been used within the past two years, although it is no longer, and is in the process of ‘cooling down’. It is therefore not currently available for assignment to anyone else, but operators will be able to apply for it again after the two-year period has expired.

@Paddy I can't find your callsign either "Microsoft Office Excel cannot find the data you're searching for." so it's not just you.

Weird...originally, I got the same error, then did a find all and up it comes.  Go figure....

Always worth setting the search criteria to workbook rather than sheet too, just in case you somehow have a different sheet getting run in the search.

Ah, I've found the problem why I can't find your callsign, I'm using an old version of MS Excel, it only goes to 65535 lines max (doh), I installed Libre Office (free) and there it is, my bad.
