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 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.

  1. Misread that at first. I thought you were going from W2LJ to KC2ZDH. OTOH, I'm glad we've progressed through this series, (KC2CIW, initially for me) it means we're gaining ground.
