There was an envelope from the FCC waiting for me when I got home from work today. Inside was a letter containing my PIN and password for the FRN number for the new callsign for the South Plainfield Amateur Radio Club. But of course, nowhere was there a mention of what the callsign was.
A quick trip to QRZ.com and a search on "South Plainfield" let me know that our new callsign is KC2ZDH. Not exactly the most "sexiest" looking callsign; but if you send it out in Morse Code, it has a nice rhythm to it! In fact, I think that if we ever held a special event as a Club, I could get used to sending it. Maybe not saying it; but definitely sending it.
The South Plainfield Amateur Radio Club (SPARC - I like that!) is a fledgling organization. It is loosely built around the various RACES / ARES / OEM personnel who are also Amateur Radio ops. As we gain more structure and formality, I am sure we will open up membership to anyone from town and the surrounding areas who would care to join.
