>From the FCC Fact Sheet on Special Event Calls:
Indicators. In addition to the special event call sign system, any amateur
station, including a special event station, may include with its assigned call
sign one or more
indicators (example "W1AW/national convention"). Each indicator must be
from the assigned call sign by a slant ("/") or any suitable word that denotes
slant mark ("portable," "stroke," etc.). If the indicator is self-assigned, it
must be included before, after, or both before and after, the assigned call sign
"KP2/W1AW/contest"). No self-assigned indicator may conflict with any other
indicator specified by the FCC Rules (such as "AA", "AG", "AE" or "KT") or with
any prefix assigned to another country (such as "DL", "F", "G" or "VE").
