Vanity Call Signs FAQ : What Call Signs depending on class may I choose?
Technician, Tech Plus and General Class operators may only apply for a "Group C or D" (1-by-3 or a 2-by-3) call sign format. A Group C call sign has 1 prefix letter followed by any numeral 0 (zero) through 9 and any three available suffix letters. (for example: K1AAA). A Group C prefix must have a K, N or W prefix -- but not the letter "A".. Group C call signs beginning with W or K seem to be the most popular. The 1x3 N callsigns are a popular choice because the suffix (the last three letters of a call sign) work well as the initials of the applicant. Another popular suffix is the applicant's current call sign suffix with the two beginning letters changed to W, K or N. (There are call signs that may not be selected that are reserved for certain state, US possessions, and othe special locations.)
