Post Petition calls on Ofcom to issue Vanity Call Signs
Rob Styles M0TFO has started a petition on change.org calling on Ofcom to allow radio amateurs to be issued with Vanity Call Signs

The petition says:

The FCC in the USA offers amateur licensees the opportunity to request a specific call sign for a primary station and for a club station also known as a vanity call signs, A Vanity call sign is a call sign that the licensee wants assigned in place of an existing call sign.

A small fee to cover administration costs by Ofcom may apply and restrictions on certain call signs.

Sign the petition to allow vanity call signs to be requested by UK amateur radio operators from Ofcom.

The petition is at

Great ... but I don't want my old callsign(s) ever re-issued, because I'm vain about them too. :scratch:

Is it just me or does the change.org site look like a scam email phishing tool?

Why go to all that bother when all you need to do in the UK is make up a callsign and start using it, isn't that what the MM3 done, was found out years later and Ofcom weren't concerned.
