Hi all,
I'm a new ham operator in New Zealand and I was wondering whether someone could please tell me what all the callsign country codes are? All I know is that New Zealand uses ZL, Australia uses VK and I think the U.S uses KH.

Thank you for your time.

Your best bet is to buy an RSGB Prefix Guide. Go to http://www.rsgbshop.org/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_Operating___DX_13.html

Scroll down until you get to the prefix guide.

You might find the 'Operating Manual' useful, too.

Go to the AC6V website and look for the Prefixes page at the bottom listing.

The US has several prefixes:

All call signs beginning with W, K, or N are US call signs.  Call signs beginning with AA through AL are also US call signs.  Certain areas count as separate DX entities.  These call signs will have for their SECOND letter an H, P, or L.  The H is for US Pacific stations like Hawaii.  The P is for the US Caribbean stations like Puerto Rico. The L is for Alaskan stations.  However since we are allowed to keep our call signs when we move, you will occasionally find that on of these special calls (e.g. KH6...) used by someone on the main land.

Most computer logging software has lookup tables built in, when you enter the callsign you hear, the country, location, etc. pops up.  Fast and handy.
