    When she tests, can she request her old callsign? (Expired 20 years ago) or does she have to get her new callsign and then do a vanity request? It should be no fee for someone getting their old callsign back...

    Not sure on both counts. She can certainly request her old call, no guarantee she will get it. I'm also not certaing they will waive the fee, but if you are an ARRL member, they should (no guarantee there either) know the answer to that.

    I see it going like this. Wife gets brand new call (HAI), then applies for the old call (assuming it's still available) and if she gets it, the listing will probably not be a purely vanity (HVIE) but the other one I can't find quickly or remember HVIB?

    She'll need to take the callsign they assign to her sequentially. Then she can request her old call sign vanity-wise if it is available.

    Don't forget that if she was more than a Tech previously, she should bring proof to the VE session for an automatic upgrade after passing the Tech exam.

    IIRC, this may also apply if she was a Tech prior to 1987 to get a General upgrade.

    is she getting her own shack, radios and tower/antennas?
    in pink, of course, so you don't try to take it over.
