Just a quick question:

Had my Tech licence KA9GAT but dropped it waaaaaay back in 1985. Can I get my licence re-instated? Keep the same old call letters? Used to be active in MARS, teletype, HF and 2 meters.

From qrz.com it looks like KA9GAT hasn't been reissued. If you pass the tests again you can apply under the vanity call program to get your old call back. I think there is a small fee.

The tests aren't hard.

sail fast and eat well, dave
