I understand that there will be a seperate lottery for those who have sued
the FCC, the FCC is opening a new block just for these guys...Argentina has
sold the rights to the L (as in Litiguous) block, so look for:
L4DX, L4CW, L4RM, L4AR etc.
(it fits like a glove and I should be able to slice thru the pileups with
it...yes, it was choice number 5 and I am making the best of it....there is
no, repeat NO truth to the rumors about my hoping in a Bronco and going after
the guy who got W4ZX)

Subject: Vanity my last thoughts
Message-ID: <01BBD260.F7B75060 at hd14-174.compuserve.com>
Just to clarify my point. I never said I was going sue the FCC nor did =
I advocate such. I did say that I thought to be fair, If wrong doing =
was found, would be to re-run it. Do I think this will ever happen? NO =
My main concern is that people were told by the FCC that this would be a =
random drawing with nobody getting preference. As stated previously, I =
don't believe this happened. If they can "pull our legs" with the =
vanity calls what else are they doing?
I do believe that there should be some sort of investigation to either =
prove or disprove this. We all paid a fee for the opportunity to =
receive a vanity call under the guise that the drawing would be random. =
If the drawing was not random is this fraud? I am not an attorney.
Oh and by the way I am happy with the call I got. Yes I am thrilled =
that I even got the chance to get one. My morals tell me something =
seems wrong with this program and I felt compelled to respond.
I do plan on writing letters to my congressmen asking them to look into =
the issue and I encourage those who feel as I do to do the same.
For those tired of this thread QUIT READING THEM!!!!!! Hit the delete =
key when you see Vanity in the subject.
Good luck in the SS TEST this weekend!!!!!

I understand Gate 2 call issuances are on hold because of lawsuits.
Does this affect Gate 1 (getting a call I held 30+ years ago?)

Good Lord! Enuf is enough.
Ed carried my app to Pittsburgh and I got my 2nd choice. When I received
my conditional license 42 years ago, I didn't get a choice, but I do
remember I was thrilled with W7YBI.
When I upgraded to Advanced in 1968, I received W6HUQ; a reissue and really
had an OT call.
When I upgraded to Extra 12 years ago, I didn't succumb to the lure of the
FCC scrabble calls (2X1) and kept my W7KJJ (another reissue from 1974).
Like the old lady said, "Where's the beef?"
So now I have a 2 letter call. I put down 25 choices, got my 2nd choice and
am satisfied. I know of at least one fella who put in for 1 choice and got
it. Gosh, I don't know if he filed by mail or via email.
What has all the above got to do with contesting anyway?
