My father, WA2MGB, recently passed away.  The FCC is in the process of moving the callsign from the "active" list.    I am looking for any record of when he first received his callsign.  It would have been between 1957 and 1960.  He held this call his entire life.

Any help would be appreicated.

Tnx,
Ted Jr.

Look in www.qrz.com and then under old callsigns. See if it shows the old call and the date of origin. Look at www.ARRL.org for info on old FCC calls on microfiche. You also have my condolences on your loss.

I looked for this call in the Summer 1960 Callbook and it's not there.  The last WA/WV2 call issued in that Callbook is WA2LRA so that is close to your dads call but his was probably issued after 1960.

WN2MGA was newly licensed, per the Summer 1958 Callbook, whereas MGB did not yet appear.  So it is very likely that your father was first licensed in late 1958.
