Of course. That's the purpose of sending and copying the exchange!
Sometime in the '70s, FCC Rules made all US calls valid anywhere in the
US, including territories and possessions, and eliminated the
requirement for sending /n. Before that time, we were issued two
licenses -- one an Operator's License designating our privileges, and
the second a Station License for a specific address. Now, the address on
our license is an address where we guarantee that we can receive mail
notices from the FCC.
When a similar question was raised on another reflector yesterday, I
The contest club of which I am a member, NCCC, has more than a dozen
very active members who have kept our non-six-area calls, and none of us
ever sign /6. I've never understood why a few guys do -- it takes more
time send and copy and log. And I NEVER log /n designators for US calls.
K7SV lives in VA, K5ZD in MA, N8OO in LA, K8TE and N2IC in NM, K6LL in
AZ, K2AV in NC, K4XU, W2VJN, KA6BIM, and N6TR in OR, N2BJ in IL, N3BB in
TX, K2SX in SC, KU8E in GA, K5KG in FL, K0EJ and W9WI in TN. W0AIH, who
we tragically lost last week, lived in WI, where he built a spectacular
contesting station. Lots of guys with 2-calls have either moved to or
have homes in FL or AZ. K2LE often operates from VT. All are very active
contesters, none ever sign /n.
