I have had my WB2EZL call since 1963 and have recently moved to the 5 call sign area. On my new QSL cards do I list the call as WB2EZL/5 or just go with the original call???

The "slash 5" indicates that you are portable, i.e not at home. If your license address in the FCC database shows your Texas address then you are not portable 5, you are at home. Geoff, K6TFZ

Unfortunately, you cna no longer tell what area someone is from using the number in their call.  The flip side to this is wherever you may move, you can keep the same callsign.  It isn't required to use the 'slash (number)' after your callsign anymore, but some of the more considerate operators still do.
