...and/or length of callsign.
Had a "WN" novice call, tried for the call without that "N", and my present call was my 2nd choice on that application (a 1x2 - W5LZ). The call sign I wanted still hasn't been issued. No idea why I couldn't get it...
I love my club call for the Nostalgic Novice Network club: KN7NNN
It's about as far from a 1x2 as you can get
Yep, that does happen on occasion! I'll hear the DX send CV or FCV. I send my full call and they come back
Years ago, I had always intended to get a better, shorter calling if and when I upgraded to extra. 20 years ago it seemed like there was a stigma with a kx#xxx callsign associated with a no-code tech license.
When I did upgrade years later I decided to keep it. I already had my callsign programmed in half a dozen radios, a dozen memberships associated with my callsign, award credit associated with my callsign, etc.
I think as easy as it is to get an extra ticket now, there isn't much in the way of prestige or bragging rights to justify changing my call to advertise my license class.
My Callsign sings better than yours, especially in CW - so there!!!! smile
One is simply a baritone, the other a soprano - it's all good - it takes more than one voice to make a harmony
Actually, you can get a lot farther.
Try WJ0YYY - see how long that takes to send in Morse, compared to, say, N5EE.

I always wanted a 1x2 callsign beginning with "W". W2AI was my first choice when Gate 2 of the vanity callsign program opened up in October 1996.
That's a wrist twister for sure!
