A possible algorithm would be to look back in the input buffer/stream till
you found the first non-alphanumeric char ( [0-9A-Za-z] for you regexp fans),
then take all chars up to the next non-alphanumeric character as the callsign.

You don't have try to parse this as a call, as you can assume the human on
the keyboard already did that.
