Appears to be... Looked up N4NYY and Vinnie has no class.

In a manner of speaking, of course.  Grin







BTW: The QRZ database has an advantage of allowing a brief autobiography, but (allegedly) does not include every valid US Hamateur license. Been more than one person here accused of being a bootlegger because of that. The only one that counts is this'un: http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/searchLicense.jsp and that's all that I have to say about that.

eHam's FCC data was extracted from QRZ's database. Right now this process seems to be somewhat dysfunctional.

Not "allegedly."  They've been found guilty. ;-)

The QRZ webmaster/moderators have said before that they will remove any entry from the database if the owner has requested its removal.  How they verify the request comes from the owner of the callsign remains unclear. Grin

They will also remove legit calls if the holder of the call - in QRZ's opinion - becomes undesirable.  I'm not really happy about it.

Other than that, their database is pretty darned good.  Just don't use it to judge someone a pirate.

Sometimes I enter the callsign of a ham in the Spotlight and get no result.
