    Hi all

    As I am licensed in England, my primary callsign is 2E0GGB. I would also like to add the following callsigns to QRZ.

    For use in England when not at my home QTH:
    • 2E0GGB/M
    • 2E0GGB/P
    • 2E0GGB/A
    For use in Wales:
    • 2W0GGB
    • 2W0GGB/M
    • 2W0GGB/P
    • 2W0GGB/A
    For use in Scotland:
    • 2M0GGB
    • 2M0GGB/M
    • 2M0GGB/P
    • 2M0GGB/A
    It seems like the preferred way to do this is via Edit > Add a special callsign. However, this creates a brand new page for each callsign, which would be unmanageable.

    I was thinking of adding all of the above as aliases via Edit > Update the basic callsign data, which would cause all of the callsigns to redirect to my primary QRZ page.

    Does anyone know what the difference is between callsign aliases and special/secondary callsigns? Are there any downsides to doing it this way?

    Hi Lisa

    I've done this as requested by Julio. He said that this thread would be deleted.

    Hello Greg,
    You can't use "Add a special call sign" that is reserved for things like a club call sign that is managed by you. This is added to the system by QRZ.

    But you can use "secondary call sign" each call sign will have a new page. The max is (4) so you can only add three. You will add the call signs under "My Account" / "secondary callsigns".
