    When I look for K5PSG on QRZ I find a total different person? Robert Cornett from Albequerque NM. Can anyone explain this to me?

    Someone simply picked it up in the FCC ULS Vanity Callsign pool program.

    Thanks, W7UUU and WB70XP.
    Yes, I went to the FCC site and saw it was a vanity call. I just didn't know it was possible to use a call that was someone else's first. It appears strange to me; I thought an assigned call remained unique to 1 person, even when SK.

    Yup - it's true. Once a callsign is cancelled, it can move along to anyone who applies for it... whether cancelled by choice or via SK

    My own call, W7UUU, came from a Silent Key - so did the call sign I'm trustee for a little club I started, with the callsign KN7NNN

    Thanks Guys- just by chance I had queried that call sign, and a myriad of others, but no luck--guess I just assumed Peggy Sue was a ham until the end.
