Hi,
My license is New York and I've always operated from my QTH. This summer I'll be in Vermont and I'd like to bring my station to Vermont and setup a dipole. I'm a bit confused on the call sign. Do I use a suffix of /P ? And when answering calls someone looking up my call sign will see NY, there must be an easy way to resolve the confusion, feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Bruce

Bruce,

  As long as you are in the states, it's not required to use any suffix.  But if you want to avoid confusion, you can do almost anything you'd like: /P, /W1 are both acceptible.

Generally when I operator from my home qth, I state that I am operating from a remote location such as the in-laws, or brother's qth.

You can just use your regular callsign.  If you want to make your location more
specific when calling CQ, then at some point you can add "portable in Vermont"
on phone, or "/1" on CW.  But you don't need to do that every time you give
your callsign.

Thanks so much for the great comments, and quick reply too. Can't wait to get the rig setup.
