Check sec.dat.  MA is a listed abbreviation for Manitoba.

Now the question remains:  Should it?  Send your responses directly to me
(AD1C at  If there's enough interest (or need), I'll change it.

As if the bands weren't crowded enough with me and my 4(1?) land cousin K1ZX :)
Congrats. Thanks for leaving W5ZX open for me. :)

Al - kk5zx 

P.S. I know the old ZX suffix is great in a contest (CW of course)

Hey Gang!

To announce your new callsign to the world, or to see WHO got WHAT call, visit:

        and click on "Vanity Callsign Announcements"

Callsign announcements will look like this:

        KA9FOX - Previous Call
        WN9KKN - New Call ( choice 4 of 25 calls submitted )
        Scott Neader, La Crosse, WI
        Submitted Friday, November 01, 1996 at 1:33:00 AM

(the example is fake... I'm keeping my call)

As soon as you enter your old and new callsigns, they will be immediately
available for others to see.

I hope this provides a needed service, plus reduces unnecessary traffic
here on the contest reflector.

73 - Scott KA9FOX
