I was WA7EJT - then opted for a vanity call sign, and low and behold W7EJT was available and issued to me. I've always wondered who was W7EJT before me? thx

Mike, Thanks for the info!!!

Interesting that the first holder of my present call is from metro Phoenix. That's where I am from.

I know where my callsign came from.....it was my dad's from 1946 till his death in 1992.   In 2002, I applied for his callsign W6ZKH, relinquishing my old call, which I had for 55 years, K6YDW..  No better way to give thanks to your mentor...
