It has been 1 1/2 months since applying for the vanity call sign K4GS so I called the FCC this morning to see what gives. (I know the government shutdown slowed the process).
The lady said that I am a loser and here I thought everyone is a winner. My name was not picked from the hat. Here are rules for applying:
- You cannot apply prior to the eligibility date of the call sign or your application is voided.
- You cannot apply one minute after the the eligibility date of the call sign or your application is voided.
- If your application hits the right eligibility date, your name is "put in a hat" and drawn to see who wins the call sign.
- If you apply via internet (in my opinion the only way to go) and the eligibility date is a Saturday or Sunday, your application will be dated the following Monday and that is fine.
So for now I'm still the good old Orange Juice King
and maybe that's okay.
