What's a specific call sign or a specific place you're talking about?

I was thinking about places like KP1 but more like some pacific islands.


I am not sure where there still is postal service. KH8/KH0 have it but just PO Boxes and no carrier delivery. I have seen KH1 and I forget where else. KH2 Guam still has postal service. (not sure about carrier delivery)

You don't need carrier delivery: a PO box address is fine.

I was not thinking of 'me' but in the past if I am correct various call signs have been issued for places with no postal delivery. AH1A ??

I think many USA type pacific possessions did have a military postal delivery but that was all. (APO,FPO,etc.)

I think now many places are just National Wildlife Monuments with some staff present but no postal delivery.(??)

I probably thought up an unsolvable one.

Even as it is now say in KH0 with just PO Boxes the population can not get an amateur license unless they frequent a Post Office which might be far away.

You just have to be able to receive mail at whatever your address of record is.  If the supply ship only gets there once every month or so, you'll get the mail then.
