VHF Society Callsigns
The Pacific Northwest
VHF Society now has both K7VHF and W7VHF
callsigns under its name. The change for W7VHF was posted on the
callsign server today. The trustee for W7VHF is Bob Abernethy,
W7BA. The transfer of K7VHF was accomplished some months ago,
with Jim Christiansen, K7ND, as trustee.
With a regional organization
as large as the Pacific Northwest VHF
Society...171 members and growing...having two callsigns will make
possible for two separate groups to use club calls for contest operations,
special events or Field Day.
Many thanks to both W7BA
and K7ND for their willingness as trustees
to put these club calls under the PNWVHFS umbrella. In order to
accomplish this, we merged the clubs that previously held the callsigns
with the society. Since the members of both clubs were already members
the society, there was no actual gain in membership; just a consolidation
of the three organizations.
The PNWVHFS board is
working on a set of guidelines for using the
calls. In the interim, the individual club trustees should be contacted
regarding use of the calls.
