What's "novice" and do some homework on what call a person can ask for.

There's old BR68'er bull right there.......the last time I heard the term 'Novice' used was by the old Radiocommunications Agency way back in the day.

Weren't they a happy and helpful bunch too! Wink


Anyway, callsigns - what does it matter?

If a so called 'newbie' wants a G sign then why not?
They'd have to be fully licenced to obtain one on application so when do they stopped being referred to as a 'newbie'?
Is it all down to years of being licenced? How many contacts they have in their logs? Some other farcical measure?

No, they stop being a 'newbie' when they feel confident enough not to have to class themselves as such. Then someone's bound to argue an 'elitist' stance - "Oh, you haven't been an Amateur for as long as me then....."

Confusion, my ass, just more examples of 'elitism'.

If someone is proud enough to honour the memory of their late Father, Grandfather, Uncle and even indeed the similar maternal line by 'inheriting' their callsign then why not? Good on them I say, no different than having the same name as your family line.

However I do find it a bit weird that someone would want to take up a SK call when they have no relationship with them whatsoever. They haven't allowed that yet have they?

If this is Ofcom using up old unissued callsigns then again, why not?


I don't care what you're called, what your callsign is, what type or mode of radio you use, that's entirely your personal choice.


For me there's only two types of people in the world - Nice people....and Assh*les. Wink

Neither of those differentiate how long you've been one or the other......but you soon find out.

Enjoy your radio, no matter what.


All the best,
Victor

Don't see a problem with reissuing old G calls never used and family now SK after say 2 years have passed. Or M calls for that matter if it saves running out of M prefix.
They do it in the US like a vanity call.
The hobby has moved on since the GPO and RA days.
73,
Mark.

He sounds just like a guy round my way.
Don't talk to him on the radio well he won't talk to M6 or M7's.
Bought a CB off him 35 years ago.








Sorry Victor.
