    Hello all..

    I found a vanity call available from a SK. This SK was a member here. If I was to take over that call how do I change my current callsign to the new callsign if this SK is registered on QRZ on the forums? would I have to use a completely different name?
    thx

    The call sign change will take place automagically a couple of days after you are assigned the call. The previous holder of the call will have his profile marked "Canceled" or "SK" (I don't recall which one) at the same time.

    What happens to the posts of the SK? Are they still searchable under a different username?

    No. They will all still be there under the SK call sign

    The easiest way would be to legally change your name to that of the SK.
