Maybe there is a list of WPE calls for those of us who have forgotten.

WPE9CSF in about 1960.  By 1962 I was known as WN9FZB and in 1963 became WA9FZB.  Still use that one, too!

Hi, I was WPE4IVJ that I got from Popular Electronics magazine in the mid 60's.  Wow, I still remember that, my old SWL call sign and I have many old SWL QSL card from all of those old and long gone SW stations...

Yes! I have the Popular Electronics SWL Call Sign WPE7RV issued in 1959 as I recall. Wish I still had that Certificate!

Just before that I earned my Novice ticket, KN7GFP but, never got on the air with that license. SWLing was an alternative. A few years later I again licensed as a Novice, WN7PXI, upgraded to Technician, KA7ORT and now hold a General Class license, N7GTE.

The '60s were the good old days of SWLing. I loved listening to many of those now silent International Broadcasters. One in particular I listened to was ELWA in Monrovia, Liberia. The World Radio Handbook was the SWLs "bible". Great times and fond memories.

WPE8HVR.  (Or High Volume Radio as I recall saying to other radio geek friends.  Proudly put it on every reception report I sent out.  And picked up a reprint of the certificate not long ago.  Enjoyed those days.

I was issued WPE4CJR.  I had a Knight Space Spanner regenerative receiver and then a Hallicrafters S-107.  Thought I was in high cotton then!

Good thread.  Brings back good memories.

I wish that I had my original certificate. My "PE" call was WPE9AVS around 1959 or so.

Had one but can't remember the call sign. PopComm is doing it again, but it seems kinda pointless. Nostalgic, sure. But they publish your name when you get your new PopComm callsign, and frankly, the Interwebs know too much about is as it is.     Where's my tinfoil hat?   : )

I sure do, it is WPE1EDS :-)  I am K4UZM as well.  My older brother Ed is WPE1AMP, and he never got his ham ticket.
