....for me, 29 years with one.....I didn't want to lose the suffix.....if I had known my current version never was issued sooner, I would have changed the old 2x3 years ago...probably not too soon there after the vanity call program came out.....What say you, yoiu 2x3 call sign holders.....why would you hang on to long and cumbersome upon upgrading?......because with the 2x3s they are issing today (with the KC-K? prefixes), I would bag that right away.....

P.S. this does not apply to you venerable guys holding the old WN#XXX call signs changed over to WA#xxx or WB#xxx....only those of you fairly newbies does this question apply.....

I got my General a month after getting my Technician. In that gap period, I'd registered on Eham as KJ6ZOL. I didn't want to change it. Why do I keep it, the answer has something to do with a West Coast HF net called Noontime Net. Their roll call alternates, on odd numbered days it starts with Z. So I can chime in at the start and not have to wait for my letter to be called. Also, 2 meter nets around here go by first letter of the suffix too. That's why.
