Club Calls - History

After a discussion on the reflector, we applied for a club call, KAØOCR was issued on on 09-23-2003.   I was hoping for KAØSOC, but it wasn't to be.   Then we started a search for a proper vanity call for our unique club.   It needed to be appropriate and of course vary SOC.   After a week or so and with the help of the Vanity Call Sign HQ we had generated a list of calls, pretty much every call that ended in SOC no matter what the prefix or call area, and held a vote, via reflector, to determine the order they would be listed on the vanity application.   The application was filed and on 01-22-2003 we were issued WØSOC.

WØSOC expired in January of 2013. The license has been renewed with Martin, AB5L as trustee.

I thought it would be cool to have SOC club calls for other areas of the US also. Unfortunately, there were no other WxSOC calls available except for W1SOC. But being a former W1 (WN1GIV and W1GIV) and SOC #1, W1SOC seemed quite appropriate. So the application for a second Second Class Operators Club call was made, and on 09-20-2006 we were issued KI4RGX. A vanity call application was quickly submitted, and on 10-13-2006 the W1SOC license was issued.   A W1SOC qsl - Bob N4BP Trustee.

Ryan applied for and received MØSOC in 2010.

Frank applied for and received K6SOC in 2013.

Violet applied for and received trusteeship for W5SOC in 2013.
