Vanity Call Signs FAQ : What Vanity call signs may Amateur Extra Class operators (or club trustees) choose?
Extra Class operators may apply for any available "Group A, B, C or D" (1-by-2, 2-by1, 2-by-2, 1-by-3 or a 2-by-3) call sign format. Group A call signs have certain 1 or 2 prefix letters followed a numeral and any available one or two suffix letters. They include three different formats:
A single prefix letter (Group A) call sign must begin with K, N, or W followed by any numeral 0 (zero) through 9 and any two available suffix letters. (For example: K1AA.) Group A call signs beginning with the single letter "A" are not available.
A two letter (Group A) prefix includes the AA to AK, KA to KZ, NA to NZ and WA to WZ prefix followed by any numeral 0 (zero) through 9 and any one available suffix letter. (For example: AA1A)
A two letter (Group A) prefix includes the AA to AK prefix followed by any numeral 0 (zero) through 9 and any two available suffix letters. (For example: AA1AA)
Be sure to read the How can I get a 1-by-2 or 2-by-1 call sign at the bottom of this FAQ section if you are applying for a 1-by-2 or a 2-by-1 call sign.
The following two letter prefixes are not available to radioamateurs with continental U.S. (the lower 48 contiguous states) mailing addresses: AH, KH, NH, or WH (reserved for Hawaii/Pacific area); AL, KL, NL, or WL (reserved for Alaska) or KP, NP or WP (reserved for Atlantic/Caribbean area.)
