Larry et al,
Here you go:
(This is the University of Arkansas at
Little Rock ARC Call Sign Look-Up)
At the bottom of that page there is a
"field" for ZIP code. You can change
the value of that field from the
default 0100 maximum hits to 5000
maximum hits allowing for searches in
very populous areas. (Yes, there are a
lot of hams in La Jolla!)
Now check this out: WA7BNM reports
Staten Is. (10314) was no. 1 with 1059
licensed hams and Palos Verdes (90274)
was 2nd with 517 licensed hams. Source:
1994 CQ Amateur Radio Almanac.
If you run those same ZIP codes *today*
Staten Island has shrunk to 639 hams.
Palos Verdes has dropped to 453 hams.
Sadly, many are Silent Keys... yet,
I'll venture a good number have headed
for the "banana belt" states. Florida
and Arizona would be likely bets. You
guys in FL and AZ must know the answer,

Hi Conrad- What's the URL for the Zip
Code-callsign look-up? I remember
there being a lot for La Jolla 92037.
