September 5 Program: Vanity Calls - How To
Our speaker for September 5th will be DFMA member Tad Danley K3TD. He will speak about the vanity call program and what calls are about to be released.
For his background, Tad reports:
First licensed in 1972 as a Technician, WA3TGR, while a student in
high school. Upgraded to Advanced in the '80s when the 'new'
current call sign structure was implemented and received KB3PF.
Upgraded to Extra in the '90s to assist as a Volunteer Examiner and
received NZ3I. Received my current call in '96 in Gate 2 of the
Vanity call sign program
Primary interests are anything to do with 50 MHz, HF and VHF
contesting, stealth antennas and helping new hams get started in any
of these activities including how to get a Vanity call
