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
