What is a “callsign?”

Many of our visitors and customers are Amateur Radio Operators. A callsign or “call” is issued by a government to the holder of a radio station license. All radio stations have callsigns, even broadcast radio and TV stations like WNBC. In the case of Amateur Radio licenses, the callsign is associated with a specific individual person, and has become a convenient way for “hams” to identify themselves to each other.
