I've got a question about applications that I can't find a good answer to.

Can you put in multiple applications for vanity calls?  (meaning having 1 app for several calls, then a separate app for more DIFFERENT calls) or….
Does a 2nd application knock out the first one?  or…
Do you have to manually kill the first application to be able to put in the next one?

I put in for 6 earlier this month in one application, at least one more is coming up soon for availability and I haven’t checked for August calls yet.  I’m not sure if I will ever run into a problem of missing a result before I’m able to apply for one, but I’d hate to miss out--even if the competition is extremely high now with free applications and so many extra classes trying.  I should have applied for one years ago!

Here are some guidelines:

- You can only submit one application each day. Only federal work days count, not calendar days. (So don't submit apps on each day of the weekend, for example.) If you submit more than one app on a given day, I believe only the first will be processed--all others will be dismissed.
- Each app can have up to 25 callsigns listed. By default they are in priority order. So when your app is processed, you would be assigned the first one on the list that is available. If none of them are available at that moment, then the app is dismissed without action.
- You can have multiple applications in the pipeline, as long as each is on a different submission date. You don't have to manually kill any.
- If one of your applications is successful, all applications that are already submitted will be dismissed because your callsign (at the time of processing) will be different from what it was when you applied.

Thanks, that's great information.  That makes it a lot easier that I though it would be.  I'm not one of the "have to apply on the first available day" people since it's SUPPOSED to be random, so I'll keep hammering them out until I get one.  I don't like the idea of using another call when I'm so used to mine, I'm mostly looking for something with less cw weight!
