    I notice that the trustee for both of these club call signs has been an SK since 2015. RIP Bo Lindfors N9UH.
    Bo was once Chief, Navy and Marine Corps MARS, disestablished some years ago.

    The call signs expired in July of 2020.

    What happens now?

    Well, clearly someone didn't have a continuity plan, and/or his "club" was an extended shadow of one person. I appreciate his good intentions, though. Perhaps his friends or relatives could reconstitute the club and reapply for the callsigns within the grace period of 1 year. Otherwise, they will fall back into the reassignment pool in 2 years, and would be up for grabs. One pitfall at this point is that new club callsigns are now one per club, which wasn't originally the case, and existing club licenses are apparently grandfathered. So, one might need two clubs for the two calls. Perhaps also whoever recovered the calls should have some realistic plan to use them periodically, such as for special events at or near the original NSS and NAA sites around the DC area, or perhaps during the annual MARS crossband tests.
