This really hit home for me. I lost my N5KM callsign a few years ago (grace period
expired for 5 year renewable licenses - drat) and I've been pushing this with every
ARRL and FCC official I can think of ever since. Even though this is a rumor, its
still the best news I've gotten from anyone I've corresponded with. Does your
PVRC source know if it'll be open to everyone? Or restricted in some way?

Sorry, this isn't contest related, but EKK didn't leave an email address.
