if i move to a different part of the country can i get a new call sign? do i have to get a vanity or do i have to upgrade to an extra?
You can keep the call you have or ask for a new, sequentially assigned call allowed for your license class (2X3 for General as all the 1X3s have been assigned). A vanity call is your choice but there is a fee for one of those. If you go for the Amateur Extra, you can get a sequential 2X2 call. The choice is yours!
