When I get set up with CB does anyone know how to get a callsign for this from this site? I've been looking through posts on the forum and people also seem to choose a nickname. Do you have to write it all down to be able to remember it as they seem quite long? 

I was flabbergasted by the number of guys involved in radio but so few women. It must be like 99.9% male? Do you think this is just something women are not interested in at all? In WWII they were pretty good at radio, comms, and decoding. The best of the best. What happened since?

With the Amateur radio (ham) callsigns you get when you pass your foundation I understand you get a choice of the last three letters and alternatives if they aren't available? I'm assuming the same three letters will transfer over to the Intermediate and Full license once you pass those as well or am I wrong about that?

Is there anywhere I can look to see available callsigns for the UK amateur licenses? And what do I need to do to get a CB callsign on this forum when I eventually buy a CB radio and antenna?

Hello and welcome to the forum, John.

To get a Charlie Tango call-sign, all you need to do, is start a thread in the 'New Members' section of the forum and formally request a call. Then Gary (the admin who oversees call-signs) will issue you with one.

It may take up to 24 hours, but if you keep checking the thread you will eventually see your call.

73s John,

The suffix of an amateur radio callsign does not carry over with you as you progress through the licence system . You might be lucky and the same suffix would still be available I know people that have kept the last three letters for all of their licences but I ended up with a different suffix for each of mine .
