I got notice this morning that my call sign change is complete. I am now K8DFI. My deceased Grandfathers old call sign.

Congratulations!  That is a very nice respect for your grandfather.  It's good that the FCC has that family call priority.  It is nice of you to continue the family legacy of ham radio and of that call.

After being KF7Z since 1981, last week I just completed my own call sign change.  I was going to change my call to a W7BDU in memory of a dear old friend, but I was too late in pulling the trigger, and that called was grabbed by other ham. 

This past Tuesday my call became K7KEY; chosen because the word "key" has special personal significance.

David: Congratulations on getting your grandfather's call.  Good move.  I'm glad it didn't get away from you.  There's no doubt in my mind your grandfather would be very happy knowing you're carrying on with his call.

I am proud that I can "use" my grandpa's callsign, and I know he would be proud. After listening to him in his shack for so many years, it is almost second nature to use K8DFI. My original KG4TYR was almost a tongue twister after forty years of hearing him on the radio. It really just rolls off the tongue easier. Thanks for the comments.
